PAYING IT FORWARD: Houston rapper Trae Tha Truth helps with Florence relief in the Carolinas

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston rapper Trae Tha Truth and his team, the Relief Gang, are helping with recovery efforts in the Carolinas after it was hit with severe flooding from Hurricane Florence.

Trae posted a message on Instagram Tuesday night from the road, saying that he's on a mission right now to help those in need and to return the favor to those who helped us during Hurricane Harvey.

He made the 16-hour drive so he and his Relief Gang can be on the ground helping those in need.

Trae told his Instagram followers that it was only right to go to the Carolinas after so many people either came here or sent donations to the Houston area after Harvey devastated southeast Texas.

He actually jumped on boats during Harvey to help with rescues and even handed out food in Third Ward and Baytown.

Trae says he didn't want to wait and catch a flight, because he wanted to get out there right away.

"At the end of the day, we are going to get out there in the trenches like we are supposed to. On behalf of myself, Relief Gang, at the end of the day, anybody who is going through it, we going to stand with each other, we are one," Trae said in his video.

Trae is telling those who need help to contact him through @reliefgang, and he will do what he can to help.
