Local hip hop recording artist Tony Brikk is aiming to raise $25,000 during the month of November for local Orlando food banks with the release of his new single, “Body Clash.”

Tony BrikkThe fight against hunger is a cause that runs deep in Tony’s heart. Earlier this year, he was homeless and living in an abandoned house for over six months, so he’s all too familiar with what it is like to go without a meal for a day.

So for the month of November 2013, he will donate sales of the single (via iTunes and Amazon MP3) to help fund local food banks via his Dance Against Hunger campaign.
