Fat Joe, Remy Ma, and More Contribute to Tidal’s Hurricane Relief Efforts

Some of hip-hop’s biggest names came together Saturday to help the millions of people suffering in Puerto Rico.

The initiative was launched by Tidal earlier this week, after it announced plans to send 200,000 pounds of supplies to the hurricane-stricken island. The streaming service set up 19 drop-off locations around New York, where people could donate necessities like cases of water, non-perishable food, batteries, new and gently used clothing, hygiene products, diapers, and more.

“Tidal, in partnership with [New York] Governor Andrew Cuomo's Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort, has announced the start of the TIDAL X: Puerto Rico initiative with the charter of a cargo plane that will bring much needed supplies to aid in the recovery and relief in Puerto Rico,” the company wrote in statement.

Artists like Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Jadakiss, and Romeo Santos stopped by the drop-off locations Saturday to help collect, sort, and package the supplies. 

“As the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico grows, our brothers and sisters are desperate for our help. Please join myself, TIDAL, Governor Cuomo, and Ruben Diaz Jr. as we collect and transport much-needed supplies to the island,” Fat Joe said in a video earlier this week. “I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and I promise all these items will be delivered by ME personally to Puerto Rico. God bless.”

You can check out photos from the drop-off locations as well as PSA from participating artists below. To learn more about Tidal's relief efforts and how to donate, go to tidal.com/puertorico

Hot 97 helped organize an event for the community in The Bronx to bring supplies for Puerto Rico and Mexico as well.

The Sports World Responds to Trump’s Attacks on NFL and NBA (UPDATED)

With our neighbors to the south, Mexico, recovering after getting hit with a series of earthquakes, and Puerto Rico still dealing with the effects of Hurricane Maria, Donald Trump spoke to the crowd at a campaign rally for “Big” Luther Strange in Huntsville, Alabama on Friday about offering a helping hand to those in need.

Man, who are we kidding? Instead, Trump attacked the NFL players who protest racism and police violence by not standing during the national anthem. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flags to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now! Out,” he said. “He’s fired! He’s fired!'” 

And why stop there? On Saturday morning, Trump also took aim at Steph Curry, who said he would not be going to the White House.  

Plenty of sports figures jumped to the defense of the basketball and football players suddenly in the crosshairs of the leader of the free world, while making #UBum a hashtag for the ages.

Even Colin Kaepernick's mom had a light-hearted response to Trump's remarks.  

ESPN's Jemele Hill, also a recent target of Trump's ire for calling him a “white supremacist,” had a message for Curry.

As did the company Curry endorses, Under Armour.

Leave it to a sporting goods company to have a stronger response to Trump's bullying than the NFL.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Trump responded to the outrage on Saturday afternoon with tweets clarifying his original position: that employees of a private company should be fired for their political beliefs.

Simultaneously, another championship team declined an invitation to the White House. A team spokesman confirmed that the UNC Tar Heels national championship men's basketball team will not visit, despite having been invited. 

Steve Kirschner said, “We couldn't find a date that worked for both parties. We tried about eight or nine dates and between they couldn't work out that date, we couldn't work out that date, so—we would have liked to have gone, but not going.” 

The players were “fine with going,” he added.
