Scarface was one of the many Houstonians holed up in their homes as Tropical Storm Harvey bored down on the city. Unlike others, the hip-hop pioneer was spared any real damage since he resides on Houston’s outskirts. Nevertheless, the devastation has affected Face tremendously.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Face spoke about how the city will move on once the news leave and the attention dies down as the city needs help recovering.
“In Houston, we going to look out for our own.” Face said. “It’s amazing how the locals are taking care of each other.”
While the veteran emcee appreciates donations from celebs such as JJ Wyatt—who raised $12 million in hurricane relief—he didn’t bite his tongue on several charitable organizations that he feels isn’t doing anything for the lower-income communities affected by the storm.
“My concern is that you donate all this money to these organizations and they don’t kick the hood in. That’s cool that you raised five or six million dollars, J.J. Watt – I love that, that’s a beautiful thing. But if you donate it to Meyerland’s relief or River Oaks’ relief or Memorial’s relief, then you just threw it away. Those people got hella money there. I don’t think they need no more. I’m sure they had insurance. Now, for the people that lost everything, people in the hood that’s flooded, the lower-income communities, those are the people that need it the most.”
