    Back To Back Awards For Atlanta Rappers Charitable Work

    Amidst the record breaking low temperatures this holiday season, last week, a few rappers from Georgia were awarded by their respective cities for their charitable contributions over the years.

    This Week’s Honors

    In Stone Mountain, rapper 21 Savage and his foundation, Leading by Example, held their annual Grant-A-Wish event. Every Christmas season involves donations to at least 100 families in need. On Dec. 21, State Representative Billy Mitchell had the honor of recognizing the day as “21 Savage Day” to acknowledge 21 and all of his philanthropic efforts. Savage’s program was created in 2018 to help inner city youth develop financial literacy and opportunities to receive higher education.

    The same day of 21 Savage’s drive, rapper Offset was most likely preparing for his own event. Around 4 p.m. that day, he wrote a heartbreaking tweet saying it’s hard for him to keep going after enduring trauma. Offset was part of a former rap group, Migos, that lost their first member, Takeoff, last month. This is reminder that everyone goes through tough times, but to always give back when we can. The toy drive was hosted on the day before Christmas Eve. His generosity did not go unnoticed, as he was awarded with the key to the city of Lawrenceville on Dec. 23, by Chairwomen Nicole Hendrickson in Gwinnett. Offset expressed his gratitude in an Instagram post:

    “I’m going to make sure that I do more for my community not just holidays or a one time thing I want to be able to change it. I’m grateful to God for enabling me to bless others. It’s not just a talent, but a way to help make the NAWF a better place by my side.

    Previous Honors from Other Rappers

    In case you missed it, there are other Atlanta rappers this month who were given awards for their charitable contributions:

    • Latto Day (Dec. 18)— along with the keys to the city to acknowledge Clay Co born rapper, Alyssa Stephens Latto
    • Dominique “Lil Baby” Jones Day (Nov. 13)— to Lil Baby for his accomplishments in the music industry and his service to his hometown by Atlanta City Council

    Hats off to Atlanta rappers giving back to their communities.
