After Tekashi 6ix9ine clapped back at his haters in his "Gooba" comeback single and video and flashed stacks of cash and a $1 million diamond-encrusted pendant, the 24-year-old rapper felt like doing some good.
He reportedly made $2 million in less than a week since the May 8 release date of "Gooba" and its accompanying merchandise line, according to TMZ. So what's the first thing 6ix9ine tried doing with a cool $2 mil? Donate 10% of the profit, which comes out to $200,000, to No Kid Hungry, a national campaign that primarily strives to end child hunger -- especially during coronavirus when one in four kids could struggle with food insecurity after schools shut down and unemployment rates spiked, according to the website's opening statistic.
"During this pandemic I understand we have nurses and frontline Hero’s who risk there life daily to save others. But NEVER forget the children & families who depend on OUR PUBLIC schools for daily meals and nutritions to keep our future leaders growing to their best potential," 6ix9ine (real name Daniel Hernandez) wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post. "To every influencer out there REMEMBER if you are blessed GOD gave you that blessing not just for YOU but also TO HELP OTHERS GOD FIRST."
