Ralo Makes It Rain at Homeless Shelter
It's about this time every year, around Thanksgiving and Christmas, that videos get posted showing rappers performing chartable deeds and giving back to their communities. 2 Chainz is usually good for some heartwarming behavior, last year raising $2 million for his TRU Foundation by selling Dabbin’ Santa Christmas sweaters.
What's captured above though isn't as inspiring, Ralo pulling up to a line at a homeless shelter and throwing cash about. As those waiting for a meal run to scoop up the loose bills, laughing can be heard in the background. "Y'all go buy yourself something to eat," a voice behind the camera says.
In late July, it was reported that Rick Ross had signed a homeless man, Isa Muhammad, to his MMG label. Muhammad went viral after he spit an impressive and impromptu freestyle for Rozay on the streets of Venice Beach, Calif. earlier in the summer. “This was something that I wasn’t expecting,” Ross said in a press release announcing Muhammad’s signing. “This kid gave me his heart when he was spitting and the Internet got a hold of the video I put up on my snapchat. I wanted to give an opportunity for someone else to be put on – I know so many people in his same position. MMG is about giving back and pushing the culture forward by finding new and real talent. Isa Muhammad will reflect quality rap music and MMG is going to make sure of that.”
