Nas Raises $27,000 For D.C. Homeless Family

Nas - "Get Down"

Moved to action after hearing about a family in Washington, D.C. lose their home, Nas raised over $27,000 dollars for them today. The legendary rapper heard about the tragic story of Stanley Young, an unemployed construction worker and father of seven, who recently lost his apartment in a fire, rendering his family homeless in the inferno’s wake. After hearing about the story from a Washington news outlet, Nas decided to take action setting up a fund through a CrowdTilt page for donations to help the homeless family.

After making the first donation and asking his millions of followers on Twitter to donate too, the page quickly raised  the $20,000 dollars for the family of eight in less than a day. No word on how the money will be distributed yet but this is an incredible win for the Young family, Nas and the human spirit in general.
