Sircaliburx is Helping People in Need
Artist and influencer Sircaliburx (AKA THE MEME GOD) has several projects in the works as the developer of his own brand and label, InTheWave Corp. IntheWave offers apparel, products, film, and photography. Sircaliburx is a rapper who is trying to make a name for himself as an artist. He has achieved fame as an influencer on sites such as YouTube and Instagram. You’d assume Sircaliburx is solely interested in things that would profit him, but in addition to his professional activities, the rapper is always giving back to his community, distributing items such as food and clothing to people in need.
In September of last year, Sircaliburx organized and collected clothing to donate to people in need. In just one week he was able to collect thousands of articles of clothing, which were then handed off accordingly. “I have saying I believe in, wealth is of the heart and mind, not the pocket,” Sircaliburx says. “I feel wealthy when I’m giving out clothes, food, whatever the people say they need, I feel good when I’m helping.”
For Thanksgiving of last year, Sircaliburx saw a need for turkeys among some local Philadelphian. To fill that need, he gave away 100 turkeys so that families and people in need could have the signature dish at their dinner tables for the holiday. “Every artist wants to blow up and then go back to where they’re from and give back, I want to always be doing that. It’s like I’m here now already with a way to help out, so why not do it.”
In 2019, the City of Philadelphia Office of Homeless Services reported that the city had the lowest number of street homeless people per capita of any of the largest cities in the US. In total, about 5,700 Philadelphians are considered to be homeless across the city, which includes about 950 who are unsheltered.
The city puts forth a great deal of effort to try and combat the issue of homelessness, but Sircaliburx wants people to know that there’s still things that people need.
“The food I give out, it goes away so fast, same with the clothes,” he says. “These people need all that and more, and I think people need to be more aware of the homeless people in their areas. I’m becoming more aware of what it’s like, and in Philly I feel like I’ve been able to help out a lot.”
The Opioid crisis has caused a lot of people to become homeless in Philadelphia in recent years. Homelessness in the downtown Center City area is also more apparent now due to construction and fewer spaces for people to live. These kinds of conditions apply not only to Philadelphia, but to many other metro areas across the country.
Pizzas for SirCalibur Day
On May 15th of this year, Sircaliburx gave away 100 Little Caesars pizzas to homeless people living on Skid Row in Los Angeles, during an event that he called SirCalibur Day. Those pizzas were given out quickly as word of mouth spread about what was being given away.
Sircaliburx has no intention of ceasing his charitable contributions. He only sees things becoming bigger from here and wants to extend his efforts while keeping things like the clothing and turkey giveaways going. In the future, he wishes to connect with individuals who are doing similar things in their areas for the homeless and less fortunate.
“There will always be people in need,” he says. I want to be of service to people.” This is what makes Sircaliburx feel fulfilled and successful. He ends by saying, “ If I’m helping others and improving lives, I feel it in my heart and I know it’s right.”
