Often times a HipHop artist’s charitable efforts go unnoticed. The media focuses more on the good deeds of stars like Angelina Jolie and Keanu Reeves. Rarely do they document the charitable nature of rap and HipHop artists. Frankly, it’s time to change that narrative. Recently, rapper YG donated to his community by offering ex-inmates designer sneakers. Rather than using the charitable event as a marketing ploy, the rapper simply did it out of the kindness of his heart.
YG Pays It Forward With Designer Sneakers
It’s not everyday that we hear a HipHop artists paying it forward. Though, rap star YG makes it a point to give back to his community whenever possible. This past Friday, the Compton rapper spoke with TMZ about his latest charity stunt. Furthermore, he donated designer sneakers to ex-inmates residing at the Los Angeles Amity Foundation House. Though, these weren’t just any ordinary ex-prisoners. They’d been granted a second chance after facing life in prison. The 31-year-old rapper greeted the inmates with an encouraging “Welcome home.” Throughout the interaction with the prisoners, he passed out the latest colorway “Block Runner” sneakers, the second edition. That’s one expensive donation.
