This week, Ohio-bred rapper Trippie Redd was in the festive spirit, generously donating Thanksgiving turkeys to over 1500 families in his hometown of Canton, Ohio.
Trippie Redd has plans for giving year-round
In an exclusive clip to AllHipHop, Trippie Redd explained his inspiration behind giving back to this hometown community and how he has plans for giving year-round, from Christmas to back-to-school events.
“I just had came up with the idea that I wanted to give back to the people that give to me, and especially in the places where I’ve been, and they’ve shown mad love. I just feel like it’s important to give back to those communities and, you know, help support those in need. Those that might look at you as somebody that’s spectacular and might not be in the very best situation at the time.”
“Now I’m at the point where I just want to give out 1500 turkeys in every state I’ve been in, where they showed that support, and they showed that love of just me being there. And of course, I’ll do other places too and reach out to some friends, but we gonna make it an annual thing, a year-round thing.” Trippie Redd said. “I’m also looking into back-to-school things, you know, Christmas things and a few other things I’m putting together.”
At only 23 years old, Trippie Redd wields a massive fan base, having garnered over 18 billion streams and collaborations with the likes of Drake, Playboi Carti, JuiceWRLD, Lil Uzi Vert, and XXXTENTATCION.
