DJBooth.net Presents Rhymes & Rhythm for Relief

rhymesrhythm_slide1On January 12th, an earthquake struck the nation of Haiti, leveling buildings, trapping thousands beneath the rubble and devastating the country’s already meager resources. In the aftermath of the disaster, the world has witnessed the terrible human impact of the earthquake and many have sought to find some small measure of hope in the face of such tragedy by doing whatever they can to help the people of Haiti. In that spirit, DJBooth.net invited artists from around the world to submit music to support relief efforts. The result is Rhymes & Rhythm for Relief, a compilation album whose proceeds will go entirely to the humanitarian organization CARE.

The album features original and unreleased music from Justin Garner, K. Sparks, Novel, O’Neal McKnight, Pastor Troy and many more. “One of my favorite sayings is ‘Actions speak louder than words,’” states Brian Zisook, DJBooth.net VP & Editor In Chief. “We were thrilled to have over 100 artists submit to the project and from that we are making 25 of our favorite tracks available on Rhymes & Rhythm for Relief.”
