This past Saturday while vibing, the homie Fiend reached out and we engaged in a heartfelt conversation. After catching up and discussing the latest acts as it relates to concerts, my new video, and recent collaborations between the two of us, Fiend chimed in and started to speak on an important issue.
Fiend: I wanted to hit you up and personally invite you and Eric out tonight. I’m participating in an event to help out our people in Michigan.
The Heat Magazine: What do you have going on?
Fiend: I have a venue on Port St. It’s a cozy venue. The cover is ten dollars or two cases of water. Dee, we have performers and several other cities are doing this in their city simultaneously to help out Michigan.
The Heat Magazine: Wow, that’s what’s up fam. How did you get involved?
Fiend: Dee, it’s an opportunity for us to give back. It’s our way of showing good people that we care and because we have experienced Hurricane Katrina and the whole U.S. reached out to us, then it’s necessary that we show love also. I just want Michigan to know that we care in New Orleans. I want them to know NOLA artists understand because we’ve been in that type of situation.
The Heat Magazine: Tell us more about the event. This is great Fiend.
Fiend: Vlad TV, Hip Hop Dx, and other top sites will broadcast the event and the whole world will see. And if people can’t make it, they can still donate. If you and Eric don’t make it, I know y’all there in spirit.
The Heat Magazine: We will do everything we can to support you big homie.
Fiend, Mr. Marcelo, Corner Boy P, Tokyo Vanity, and others performed for the cause.
