Rapper Trae tha Truth & Dj Mr. Rogers Open Relief Gang Warehouse in Houston
When Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Texas and Louisiana in August 2017, Houston rapper Trae tha Truth and Dj Mr. Rogers didn't hesitate to hit the streets of their hometown and other cities in Southeast Texas, to not only rescue residents trapped by high floodwaters but to also deliver supplies to those stuck in their homes. From that moment, the Relief Gang was born.
As several lesser storms and floods have recently affected Texas since Harvey, the duo hasn't let up when it comes to helping their fellow Texans, regardless of race or personal beliefs. They've selflessly put their lives on the line to help those in need during these often life-altering natural events, much of it captured via social media by those who were affected.
The Slidin rapper took to Instagram over the weekend to announce that he and Dj Mr. Rogers along with Jose Ortega had taken things to another level by opening a new 245,000 square foot Relief Gang Warehouse in Houston to help continue their humanitarian efforts. According to Trae, the new space will house supplies, building materials, food, water, and clothes.

I commend Trae and Rogers in their continuous effort and growth at providing help to those in need during natural disasters as well as events like Trae Day and more that take place throughout the year in Houston. Their awe-inspiring actions these past two years have been admirable and further prove that hip-hop has a heart.
