Texas is our home and our hearts are breaking over the unbelievable devastation Hurricane Harvey has caused the Houston area as well as the many other hard hit communities in the state. The residents of Texas are our family, and it is so important to us to do whatever we can to take care of our own.
ScoreMore is actively working on additional initiatives to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey that we hope to announce soon. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to aid in the relief efforts now to support your fellow Texans in need. Below are some of the ways you can help:
List of shelters and services that are in need here.
Creative Mornings created an open Google Doc listing opportunities for you to help those who have been affected here.
NPR has a list of ways to help here.
JJ Watt is running a great campaign where you can donate here.

More Life, the “playlist project” by Drake was released on streaming services last week versus being released as an official album or a mixtape. Additionally, More Life premiered Saturday on Drake’s Apple Music radio show before becoming available to stream and download.
According to Fader, “the project — which features contributions from Young Thug, Kanye West, Skepta, Sampha, 2 Chainz, and more — broke multiple streaming records on Spotify in the first 36 hours following release. More Life was also streamed 89.9 million times on Apple Music in the 24 hours after its release, giving Drake the record for most single day album streams.”

Joey Badass has dropped the video for the “Land of the Free,” which will be included on his sophomore album titled All-AmeriKKKan Bada$$ scheduled to be released on April 7 via Cinematic Music Group and Pro Era Records.
According to Billboard, “in the powerful video, Joey alternates between speaking to a group of children in a windy meadow and standing in solidarity with a group of black-clad adults in a desert with their hands chained together, building to a confrontation with a firing squad made up of white police officers and businessmen, who ruthlessly shoot several of the prisoners.”
Catch the video for “Land of the Free” below!
French Montana has released the music video for his MC4 track titled “Said N Done” featured ASAP Rocky. The song was released back in August of 2016 as part of French’s mixtape Mac N Cheese 4 (MC4).
