    Rap'n for Sandy


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ChrisLuna told me, 'They're actually freestyling, meaning they're making the songs up as they go. A person gives them a subject and a dollar, and they rap about it. And the dollar goes to Sandy victims.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    At Astor Place in New York City, Eduardo Ramos and CJ Richards have been rap'n to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims. Both have been active volunteers in the recovery effort (after the storm they rented a zip car on muiltiple ocassions and drove to Far Rockaway where they carried hazardous water damaged materials from homes for the elderly). Mr. Richards explained that he and Eduardo wanted to contribute on days that they couldn't leave Manhattan because of work.


    They are supported by their volunteer band which includes drummer Greg Shulz, and Micah Lewis & Thomas Roberts on trombones.
