(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne announced his One Family Foundation nonprofit organization partnered with Apple Music to donate $200,000 to the World Central Kitchen. The funds will help Wayne's hometown of New Orleans during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The $200K donation was announced during the first episode of Weezy's Young Money Radio on Apple Music. During the live broadcast on April 24, Wayne spoke to New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell about his contribution to the city.

Apple is a $1 TRILLION, 300 BILLION dollar company.

$200k is 0.0000153846153846% of $1.3Trillion!

Apple could've dropped $10M and not felt it. And then Wayne has AT LEAST $150M.

So if each entity put up $100K, that is the equivalent of the average joe giving a homeless person MUCH MUCH LESS THAN A PENNY.

$200K is pitiful and I refuse to act like they made some grand sacrifice for the greater good.
