Tinchy Stryder is lending his support to a charity gig to raise money for the victims of the Haiti earthquake.
The British rapper won't be able to perform at the London event on January 20 as he is in the US, but has donated merchandise for the night's raffle.
"It's so sad and I know everyone who's seen the news has been touched by how many people have lost their lives and been made homeless - now, more than ever, it's about playing your part, so whether you can give £5 or £50, be a part of it," he said.
"Unfortunately I'm in America and can't attend the event but I've donated a load of gear from Star In The Hood which you can win on the night, so do make sure you buy your raffle ticket too."
The charity gig, at The Den and Centro in central London on January 20, has been organised by Ctrl.Alt.Shift - a charity who use popular culture to take global action - and SOMEnight, a weekly dance music event, and will feature performances by underground artists who have waived their fees to play.
