Travis Scott Gives $100,000 To Help Students In Drone Racing Competition
(AllHipHop News) Rapper Travis Scott has donated $100,000 to a nonprofit organization which helps youths in his hometown of Houston, Texas.
Travis had a successful 2018, with both his album Astroworld and his single "Sicko Mode" hitting number one of the U.S. charts, his Astroworld festival selling out before the line-up was announced, and his tour drawing an A-list crowd.
The rapper is now giving back to his hometown of Houston by donating $100,000 to Workshop Houston, a nonprofit organization which participated in his festival last year.
Bosses of the organization aim "to provide youth with creative, technical and educational resources" and they offer a series of after-school programs which focus on topics such as music production and graphic design.
Some of Travis' donation will go towards a drone racing competition, to be held at Space Center Houston in May, and towards helping students recreate the Milly gown former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama wore in her official National Portrait Gallery portrait.
Travis, who shares daughter Stormi with Kylie Jenner, resumes his Astroworld tour on January 25.
