’Tis the season for the Hip-Hop Helps Annual Toy Drive, with performances by Mr. P Chill (pictured), Poor (Tribe of Levi), Ms. Vybe and more. Attendees feeling the holiday spirit can either pay a $10 door cover or bring a new, unwrapped toy to gain entrance. For the past nine years, event organizer Mr. P Chill and the hip-hop community have joined forces to benefit the Stanford Settlement Neighborhood Center. Last year, two bins chock-full of toys were donated to the children of the organization.
