Sak Posse: Cormega + Kreyol Hip-Hop Come Together For Haiti

January 11, 2012

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Back in May, after Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake had faded from most people’s minds (and before its plight became a cause célèbre again), Queens rapper Cormega corralled a crew of New York rappers (Redman, General Steele from Cocoa Brovaz, Stic Man from Dead Prez, MOP’s Lil Fame) for the Haiti-themed track, “I Made A Difference,” with 100 percent of sales going to benefit Sean Penn’s J/P Haiti Relief Organization. Tomorrow night, on the eve of the earthquake’s second anniversary, ‘Mega continues his charitable efforts for Haiti as the host of Kreyol Hip Hop 4 Haiti benefit concert at New York’s SOBs tonight. The event, presented by Wyclef’s Sak Pase label, features a roster of Haitian rap acts (both Kreyol-speaking and otherwise), most notably Mystik 703, who are fresh off of a tour of Japan.
