Raekwon - Raekwon Staging Sandy Benefit Gig

Rapper Raekwon is staging a charity concert in New York to aid the victims of superstorm Sandy and help to rebuild his native Staten Island.

The Wu-Tang Clan star will perform at the Jaguars 3 venue in Brooklyn on Thursday (13Dec12) for the Raekwon & Friends gig.

The event will take place one day after the star-studded 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief at Manhattan's fabled Madison Square Garden. That mega-gig will feature rock legends Bruce Springsteen, Sir Paul MCCartney, the Rolling Stones, Billy Joel and Jon Bon Jovi, among others.

The rapper's show is part of his new Ride4Ny non-profit organisation's efforts to raise funds and create rebuilding strategies for families in need.

Raekwon has also helped to design three custom bicycles to auction off on eBay.com to boost funds for his charity.
