Hip-hop is doing its part to assist quake ravaged Haiti. Leading DMV (DC – Maryland – Virginia) artists Wale, Tabi, Raheem DeVaughn, Phil Ade and XO put on a ‘DMV Helps Haiti’ benefit concert at DC’s 9:30 Club on Monday and will be at Howard University tonight.

It is great to see hip-hop artists using their talents to help the world, especially artists who get a bad rap for bad rap. But, not everyone thinks hip-hop has done enough to help Haiti.

However, as Wale has shown the hip-hop world is slowly mobilizing, one beat at a time.

For those not in the Howard University area there are other great opportunities to donate and get some good music in return.
