Since a massive 7.2 earthquake devastated Haiti last month, major relief efforts were launched in an attempt to collect funds, clothing and non perishable goods for those most affected by the natural disaster. Tonight (Sept. 3), another one of those efforts will take place in the form of a benefit concert, which will be thrown by Atlanta’s own Future.
In the days following the earthquake, Future quietly announced the event with a post of the flyer in his Instagram Story. Then, only details regarding the date, time, location were included along with the link to the official ticket site. Now, however, an updated ad reveals that the “Mask Off” emcee will not be the only one hitting the stage; Lil Uzi Vert and Kodak Black are slated to perform at the benefit concert as well.
While Future is hoping to help Haiti with his event, Jackboy announced that he and another rapper were coming together to build a hospital in the country. The idea was inspired after Jackboy visited the island and noticed patients sleeping outside of one of the hospitals.
“I personally handed every single last 1 of them a[n] envelope full of money, but fr fr I feel like that ain’t enough…,” he wrote. “Who want[s] to go half with me & get a hospital built? It’s not really that much, especially if we using dollars.” He pledged to donate $100,000 and attempted to tap Future for the project. Moments later, he revealed that Lil Baby agreed to assist.
Future’s benefit concert will go down at the Oasis Wynwood in Miami with Karen Civil as the host. “I would love for all my friends, family, music industry, fashion, and all other industries, and people as a whole to stand up for Haiti,” he previously wrote. “I want to use my voice to do whatever I can to support Haiti during these tragic times and will be doing a benefit concert on September 3rd in Miami. Tap in to support.”
