The Houston rapper will stream a performance on Friday, March 20, at the Brooklyn venue Purgatory. The concert is a fundraiser for the Houston Food Bank, a non-profit organization that has been assisting in efforts to help provide food to those in need during the coronavirus pandemic. The livestream via YouTube will begin at 9pm EST. The livestream will also include a donation link in its description. (A separate donation link can also be found here.)

These days it feels like we’re living in purgatory, unsure of what will happen next, or if things will get better or worse first. The one thing I know is that we all gotta stay our ass at home. Instead of just vibing alone, I’m bringing some cameras.⁣ ⁣ This Friday, March 20th I’m doing a live stream concert at 9pm EST. It’s a fundraiser for the @houstonfoodbank, an organization that will ensure quarantined individuals and the children who are out of school won’t be missing any meals. I’ll be broadcasting live without an audience at @purgatorybk_, a Brooklyn venue owned and operated predominantly by women.⁣ ⁣ Produced and shot by @ryanmuir. Hit the link in bio to watch the stream! ⁣ ⁣ Please donate here: http://bit.ly/FatDonate 🙏🏾✨
