He is the founder of Hip Hop Homelessness which he raised over 7K in funds by selling hip hop and using all of it to buy sleeping bags and packs for homeless people across the UK hand delivering the goods himself. A documentary Hip Hop and the Housing Crisis was released earlier this year with powerful coverage of Chester's work.
