Episode Summary

EDIT
This is the year for rapper and activist Cormega. Last week the musician released his "I Made a Difference" single featuring a slew of rappers from the Hip-Hop community. Cormega held a press conference at Red Music/Stache Media where he addressed the need to help the victims in Haiti. It was on a trip there after the massive earthquake on January 12th, 2010; where the rapper gave his time and efforts to the people of Haiti. Since then, Mega has organized a coat drive along with performing at this year's Hip-Hop for Haiti concert at S.O.B's in New York City. Cormega adds "it was time for me to step up.

Also, rise to occasion to help the people of Haiti. But the project was hard to start from the jump. Cormega asked many rappers and musicians to contribute, but some were seeking other reasons than to donate their time and resources to the cause. He elaborates on how some of the egos made him shy away from some artists. "I asked some artists could they just spit a verse. Many were like, "who's going to be on the record?" Moving forward, he chose vocalist/songwriter Maya Azucena to sing the hook on the record. Azucena, who's had a major track record for donating her time and resources to causes like Haiti to domestic abuse, was more than adamant to participate in the project. Maya believes "this was something I had to do! I couldn't sleep on this one! I've done many benefit concerts for the people of Haiti, but something like this tugged at my heart and when Cormega asked me to part of this, I jumped on it." Cormega then asked Red Media/Somoreless
