Though relief efforts are still be being brought to Haiti, there is still much to be done in the impoverished country.

One year after the devastating earthquake tore through Haiti’s capitol city Port-Au-Prince, many of the country’s citizens still remain homeless. Def Jam senior VP of A&R Micheal “Sha Money XL”Clervoix spoke to MTV about giving back to his homeland.

“My family and I have sent money, clothes and food directly to the people back home in my mother’s town of Limbé as well as people in the capitol, Port-Au-Prince,” Clervoix said. 

He continued: “We have also donated to Wyclef’s foundation so he can continue his great efforts. I have close relatives we have funded to go back and forth for the last year at least eight times and the fight continues.”

In an effort to use his musical influence for the greater good of the nation, Sha will also be executive producing a benefit EP for Haiti.

“I will also be using my musical talents to put a Haitian hip-hop EP together with Creole Haitian rap stars Seca Konsa and others. All proceeds will go back to Haiti,” he told the news outlet.

At press time an official release date for the project had not yet been announced.
