It’s always awesome to hear about celebrities who use their fame and do something good with it. We’ve read stories about celebrities who go that extra mile by donating money or using perks that come with the job of being famous to help those in need.
Rapper Tech N9ne is no exception either. Even though his lyrics cover a wide variety of bizarre subjects, he uses his music to express his personal issues and overall world issues. His song about breasts called “Areola” is a satirical song that usually gets a lot of attention at his concerts.
Rapper Tech N9ne says that when he performs the song “Areola” at his shows, women usually throw their bras on stage during the performance. “My job is a good one,” he joked. “I receive the bras then I give them to the needy. I noticed that the better we did on stage, the more bras that came up on stage. We collected a lot of bras, so that means we have been doing really well on stage; so well that years back we did a song to speed up the process.” The song is ‘Areola’
But instead of having his crew just throw the bras in the trash, the rapper donates them to shelters for women escaping domestic abuse.
He decided to start doing this because of his own life experiences.
When he was younger, he witnesses his mother’s boyfriend abuse her.
He said this abused happened when he was in the 3rd and 4th grade.
He also said that the violence got so bad, that his family was forced to move to a different state.
“He beat her really bad that time so I had to do a bit of fourth grade over there.”

It’s pretty amazing that a “ridiculous parody song” about breasts has been able to help out so many people.
“I will never forget that feeling,” he said. “I will never forget seeing my mom in the hospital from getting beat up. I will never forget that. That is an image I will never be able to be erases.”
That’s why he’s made it his mission to never throw away the bras that women throw on stage. In his most recent donation, the rapper donated hundreds of bras, in all 500, each one giving survivors of domestic violence hope and a reason to start over.
