How Boosie Badazz Is Helping Louisiana Flood Victims
Lil Boosie, a.k.a. Boosie Badazz, is stepping up to help flood victims in his home state of Louisiana. On Sunday (Aug. 21), the 33-year-old rapper, who is a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, packed a U-Haul truck with necessities to donate to those affected by the natural disaster.
According to his Instagram page Boosie and his brother/manager TQ are supplying flood victims with clean underwear, bottled water, and hygiene kits.
“Just Doing what I can to help my people effected by the #brflood2016, he wrote adding that he has “20,000 socks [and] underwear for men, women [and] children/ bottle waters [and] hygiene kits available also.”
The aftermath of “historic” flooding claimed 13 lives in Louisiana, and tens of thousands have been displaced, which includes roughly 4,000 teachers and staff members in the East Baton Rouge Parish Schools where school for students in grades 1-12 is expected to begin on Wednesday (Aug. 24).
The Red Cross is calling the disaster “the worst to hit the U.S. since Superstorm Sandy,” and is estimated to cost “at least $30 million.”
