San Antonio Rapper Hosting Hip-Hop Benefit for Sutherland Springs Victims' Families

In an effort to show solidarity and take action beyond thoughts and prayers, local rapper Jose Angel Perez, better known as Spy MC, has turned a hip-hop show at Ventura into benefit for the families of those affected by the Sutherland Springs massacre.

The event features Vel The Wonder, an LA-based female rapper that spits with a ferocity greater than most of her male-counterparts, alongside Perez and slew of local flavor from our budding hip-hop scene.

This isn’t the first event that Perez has been a part of either. The rapper helped organize a hip-hop benefit show for Puerto Rico and Mexico disaster relief a few weeks ago. He did his part for a Hurricane Harvey benefit show at Paper Tiger too, a show which raised more than $2,500 for victims affected by the flood.
