Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne is world renowned for his electrifying stage show, but now he’s about to  be known for something else entirely. The Strange Music boss donated bras to a shelter in his hometown that houses survivors of domestic violence.

Tech N9ne’s song “Areola,” from his 2009 album Sickology 101, has been a staple track at his live performances which involve women taking off their bras and throwing them onstage. Tech took the “fun party song” as he called it in a chat with XXL and morphed it into a mission to help the women of Hope House, a shelter that assists abused women.

Tech revealed the connection to Hope House was solidified by his own experiences witnessing his mother become a victim of domestic violence.

From Tech’s Instagram:

This morning at Strangeland Studios with the Ladies of Hope House Lees Summit during our news interview about me donating the bras we received at our shows that we are giving to Domestic violence shelters! They were so nice and thankful! I told them how I was one of those kids that had to witness my mom getting beat by an old boyfriend back when I was in 3rd and 4th grade and how we were always running to a relatives house to get away from him.

Way to go, Tech N9ne!

This morning at Strangeland Studios with the Ladies of Hope House Lees Summit during our news interview about me donating the bras we received at our shows that we are giving to Domestic violence shelters! They were so nice and thankful! I told them how I was one of those kids that had to witness my mom getting beat by an old boyfriend back when I was in 3rd and 4th grade and how we were always running to a relatives house to get away from him.I told them how at one point we had to run all the way over to KCK and stayed in a house right on Quindaro for a while cause he beat her really bad that time so I had to do a bit of fourth grade over there in KCK at an elementary school called Benjamin Banneker. That was news for even the news team filming! They had no idea that I connected so well with women and children escaping life threatening abuse! This interview was beyond Areola! But look what such a ridiculous parody song turned into! 3Dimensional T9!
