Z-Ro Drops “Houston 2Gether” Song, Proceeds to Go to Hurricane Harvey Relief Funds
With the city of Houston in need of any help it can get after the destruction Hurricane Harvey left behind, rapper Z-Ro has released a new song titled “Houston 2Gether.” The rappers plans to give all proceeds from the track to hurricane relief funds.
Z-Ro made the announcement on Instagram, posting a snippet of the record and writing the caption, “All proceeds donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. Thank you for your help in our time of need!”
Like many of the residents of Houston, Z-Ro remains positive on his country-inspired song, rapping, “I seen a Black man rescuing a white man/Can’t nobody tell me my city won’t be alright, man/Flood water to the ceiling, we ain’t go no lights, man/It ain’t safe to brush your teeth/You just might lose your life, man.”
The MC also shouts out fellow Houston artist Paul Wall for his efforts. “They say Paul Wall just talking diamonds in his grill/All I see him do is empty out his pockets when it’s real,” raps Z-Ro.
“Houston 2Gether” is Z-Ro’s first song since he released No Love Boulevard in June. At the time of the album’s release, the rhymer said the album would be his last. The 14-song LP marked the end of a career that has spanned two decades and included more than 20 studio albums.
Z-Ro also becomes the latest Houston rapper to assist victims in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Trae Tha Truth went into the flood waters himself, rescuing victims with the help of friends and the local fire department, while Bun B went a different route, organizing a benefit telethon that will air live on TV on Sept. 12.
