His heart was willing, but Green lacked direction, doing what he could while wishing he could do more. That changed after he received a congratulatory Instagram direct message from Houston rapper Trae tha Truth after Green signed with the Rockets. Green replied, asking about the Relief Gang, aware that Trae tha Truth and Justin Rogers, aka DJ Mr. Rogers, had put their music careers on hold to commit to the cause.
