Master P Announces Benefit Concert For Louisiana Flood Victims During NBA All-Star Weekend
Master P is looking to help his Baton Rouge people.
The 2017 NBA All-Star has been moved down to New Orleans this year, and Master P is doing all that he can to make sure the flood victims of Louisiana receive assistance.
New Orleans' No Limit general Master P is teaming up with a slew of artists for a benefit concert. Proceeds generated from the charity event will go to the victims of the devastating floods that ravished Louisiana this year. 11 people killed, and it left thousands of homes destroyed.
"Together we will entertain and give fans a great show but the real mission is to help get families back into their homes," Master P said via email "In Baton Rouge, there is still a lot of pollution in the air, water damages and mildew. "I want all the athletes to come out, we are going to have all the top celebrities there from Usher to Lil Wayne. When people look at the floods and a lot of victims, they are not back in their homes yet in Baton Rouge, and I feel like for All Star Weekend, even though this will be a fun event, It will be a way for everyone to do their part, so this concert will be great for our people and Baton Rouge."
According, to the Red Cross, this flood, which happened on Aug. 18, was the worse natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy.
