Young Thug Donates New York Show Profits to Planned Parenthood


(AllHipHop News) Rapper Young Thug has become the latest star to publicly support Planned Parenthood by donating profits from a recent show to the women’s health organisation.

The 25-year-old, who is already a father of six, knows first-hand how tough it can be for youngsters to gain access to free or affordable sexual health care under the current U.S. system, so he has vowed to help out by handing over proceeds from his New York City concert on Thursday to the non-profit firm.

He told fans of his plans in a post-gig message on Twitter, writing, “I’m donating the proceeds from my show… to @PPFA. I was a teenage parent. Planned+unplanned parenthood is beautiful.”

He follows in the footsteps of artists like Katy Perry and Halsey, who have recently cut cheques for the organization amid concerns new U.S. President Donald Trump will slash federal funding for the company, while rapper/actor Common and rockers The National performed at a Planned Parenthood benefit concert in Washington, D.C. in January.
