The city of Houston is currently under water and the ongoing rain from Hurricane Harvey is causing catastrophic flooding all over the city and in surrounding areas.
Several rappers from the Houston area have been using their social media platforms to deliver disaster information and mobilize relief efforts for the citizens of H-Town.
Houston legend Trae tha Truth has been on the front lines of the relief efforts in the flooded city. The Rap-A-Lot artist was in a boat rescuing people who were trapped in their flooded homes. While being interviewed on Fox26, he urged people who have boats and trucks to come and help in anyway they can. He said folks need supplies, clothes and food as well.
Other Houstonians like Baby Bash is stuck inside his home and is trying to figure out how he’s going to help his city. The rapper is fine and well but told TMZ that the chaos and looting is already starting in Houston.
“It’s chaos, tragedy,” he said. “It’s almost like a biblical, historical flood. We just want people to understand this is real, this is not no joke. This is devastating.The flood is one thing. And then, the chaos and the anarchy and the craziness and the people just desperate to steal to survive is gonna be a whole other issue.”
As we reported earlier, Houston native Beyoncé vowed to do everything she can to help the victims in her beloved city. In a statement given to the Chronicle, the pop superstar said, “My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help. I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor (Rudy Rasmus) to implement a plan to help as many as we can.”
If you want to help Houston and other affected areas in Texas, the Chronicle posted a list of how you can donate and assist.
Prayers up for Houston.

It amazes me when people comment things such as "prayer doesn't help- donations help", or "what does saying words do". Well let me be the first to testify about the power of prayer. First of all, to overcome this we are going to need resilience and have to maintain a positive attitude. If you have never experienced God's mercy and love then I will first pray for you, that God will reveal himself to you. God can overcome any situation. God can change our circumstances, and our finances. Please do not think little of the power of prayer. Prayer is a powerful weapon. If you choose not to use it, then that is your choice. But I strongly encourage any and all of my followers to pray that God will deliver us from what we are dealing with in Houston. Thank you for the love and support. When the water goes down we will have Drop off locations around the city if you want to help. There are several go fund me accounts that you can donate to, we have a few up already. Take your pick. We have a relief concert in the works. Give back. Help out your neighbor, help out anyone who needs it even if it's a stranger. Show love, the Texas way. And by all means #PRAY
