These Rappers Keep It Real By Giving Back

Many famous rappers like to talk about how rich they are, but are they willing to put their money where their mouth is? These particular hip-hop artists had no problem doing so. They’ve donated chunks of their bank accounts to worthy causes, such as providing scholarships for kids going to college and helping to feed the hungry. For some, it was a one-time donation; for others, it is an ongoing charitable effort. Many rappers have even started their own charities in order to help make a difference. But when you are a chart-topping rapper, money just ain’t a thing.

Drake’s Double Donation

When Drake filmed the video for his single “God’s Plan” at Miami Senior High School in Florida, he allowed many of the students to appear in the video as extras. But then he really shocked the students when he donated $25,000 to the school. He then committed to providing all of the students with uniforms designed by his clothing line OVO. The rapper didn’t stop there; he then headed over to the University of Miami to surprise one lucky student with a $50,000 scholarship. The student was Destiny James, a first-generation college student who was raised in a single-parent home from a low-income family.
