However, as new events come, and new disasters happen, people tend to focus on the more recent disasters, and forget the people that they were originally helping, leaving them to struggle to rebuild their lives. With the most recent disaster in Japan, people have forgotten that in January 2010, Haiti,also experienced a devastating earthquake. With the nation's media campaigns and natural disaster relief organizations putting the focus on the most recent disaster, funding has instantaneously stopped to the citizens in Haiti.
With the lack of funding, that Haitian citizens primarily used to stock food and medical supplies, as well as attempt to clear the rubble left by the disaster. Not to mention the micro earthquakes in the area, still rattling the minimalistic efforts that the people have struggled to maintain, as recent as the past week.
Despite it all, Prince Gudda has not forgotten that people everywhere need help. As the focus of the media has directed people to begin to fund the newest natural disaster, he knows that the people of Haiti still need help. By taking what he does into a way to help the masses, he is giving 10% of the proceeds he will make off of his new single "Droppin Down", back to the people in Haiti. "Even though I am an independent artist, it doesn't mean that I can't help. Most people wait until they make it to decide to want to help others. I want to do something now," he stated.
Though the song itself is not about Haiti, he is still taking the initiative to draw his fans to be engaged by his music, but give to a worthy cause as well. And for people who enjoy an upbeat hip hop song, made to make people feel good, during these times of turmoil, he is proud to promote his work, especially with a positive cause behind it.
He continues to state that this will not be his last time donating to people in need. " I plan to make this a regular thing, where I am always donating part of what i receive to people in need". He truly is an artist who is serious about giving back to people in need, no matter who they are. As he continues to become recognized my many, he serves to be a leader and not a follower. His hopes are that more artists would lose the mentality that they cannot help others until they "make it big".

All donations are being made to Yele Haiti, who is providing new housing, food, clothing, and opportunities for Hatian families to rebuild their lives, their communities, and restore so much of the culture that they have lost. More can be found at http://www.yele.org
