If your not going to this today, then what are you doing with your life? (Haiti Benefit Concert)

I personally think it's impossible to be untouched by the situation in Haiti at the moment and often when such disasters happen, it's pretty easy to feel powerless about helping. Which is why when I heard that Chantelle Fiddy and True Tiger were coming together use Grime music as a vehicle to raise money for the disaster in Haiti, I was totally in support of it.

We're all pretty famiiliar with the general negative stereotypes associated with urban music performers, so clearly these artists were willing to put their money where their mouth is, contributing to the sickest line up I have seen so far in 2010. Okay fair enough we're not that far into it, but it's gonna be pretty hard to compete for the rest of the year.

Check out the over serious line up.
