Compton native Problem announced his new organization, “Chachi Cares,” an initiative to give back to his community. For his first event he partnered with Mayor Aja Brown and L.A’s hip-hop station Power 106 to host a Back 2 School event for the city of Compton.
The free event which took place at the Douglas Dollarhide Community Center this past Saturday, September 10th gave away 100 backpacks packed with school supplies and free hair cuts to the first 50 children that come out.
“I’m very passionate about the community and especially the city of Compton, the city that raised me. This is going to be a great day for the families to come out, get supplies and have a fun day with us,” said Problem.
The West Coast rapper created this fun and free day for families complete with bounce houses for the kids, free lunch, face painting and a concert by Problem and other local musical which included the Divas of Compton, Jonn Hart, Clayton William, Ohno, and more.
Home Grown Radio was out and about at the fun community event where we talked to Problem about his event and the meaning behind it. Check out our footage below!
