(AllHipHop News) Recently, 2 Chainz has received some criticism from C-Murder. The Georgia native is staying focused and continues to invest his time into worthy causes. Last week, Mr. 4 Bracelets announced the upcoming Watch Out tour. In addition to his music, the altruistic rapper is sharing his blessing through his charity, the TRU Foundation. Yesterday (Jan. 19), in a video posted to YouTube, the “I’m Different” rapper announced that he donated a home to an Atlanta family of 11.
Previously, the family in question was facing eviction from their prior home. That grateful father described his angst, “We ain’t know where we was gonna go.” He went on and spoke on his surprise, “We was not looking forward to nothing like this. It is way over our head, but we gonna learn how to deal with it. But we thank God for it. Now we don’t have to cry no more. We don’t have to worry nothin’ no more.”
After visiting a fundraising page set up by the Atlanta’s Progression Church 2 Chainz discovered information about the family’s precarious plight. “This right here ain’t gonna save me taxes; it’s in the beginning of the year. I’m looking forward to seeing their smiles,” he stated before adding, “I’m looking forward to the kids growing up knowing that Uncle 2 Chainz came through. Keep praying. You gotta have faith. You gotta believe.”
The TRU Foundation worked to bless the family with a two story home. It boasts five bedrooms. Check out the full video to find out how the family reacted.
Will 2 Chainz’ actions inspire other MCs to go beyond the bars and give back to their communities?
