Probably one of the most stacked hip-hop shows San Antonio’s seen in a minute, The Korova is hosting a benefit concert for Hurricane Harvey relief with some of the most recognized names in the hip-hop community including Brother Ali, Slug from Atmosphere, and Immortal Technique to name a few.
On September 1, Immortal Technique said this about the show on his Facebook “I want to extend my appreciation to everyone who came forward to help put this together. Not just the artists but the local residents, promoters, sponsors, venue and all of the staff that will be killing themselves behind the scenes … Eid mubarak to my supporters who celebrate it. We should always remain humble and appreciate the things we take for granted that others are dying without. I am humbled by the support across the board and the unity I have witnessed in the wake of this. I look forward to seeing you in Texas.”
The charities receiving 100 percent of the proceeds include Houston Food Relief Fund, Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, Houston Food Bank, and Houston Humane Society.
