Now that Kodak Black is out of jail, he’s had some time to think about the difference he wants to make in the world – and he’s starting in his parents’ homeland.
The “Tunnel Vision” rapper, born Dieuson Octave, got his grandmother a house and he announced to his fans that he plans to build a school in Haiti too.
“I got my Grandma a mansion in Haiti,” he wrote on Instagram. “I feel like we still be going through slavery. Out of all the times I donate or give back in anyway I never upload or broadcast it. But I’m happy to say I’m building a school in Haiti as well. #Pray4Haiti, #TheLandofHell, #WeChosen, #Levite.”
Black has spread some charity in the states too.
Last month he gifted the Jack & Jill Children’s Center in Broward County, Fla, $10,000. Kodak’s lawyer said it’s a personal initiative of his to do good following his prison stint.
Another rapper who is also giving back is French Montana who recently funded two preschool classrooms in Morocco.
According to TMZ, the 33-year-old who is originally from Casablanca, Morocco, teamed up with the Sabae School of Fida-Mers Sultan district to ensure that the school has the supplies and resources it needs to be successful for the next few years.
Montana also committed to helping build a hospital in Uganda and raised a half million dollars to the project. The hospital is expected to open March 2019 and it will service more than 400 villages in the North African country and treat more than 300,000 women, PEOPLE reports.
Montana migrated to the US when he was just 13, but he only became a US citizen recently, the outlet reports.
Earlier this year Montana also teamed with Adam Levine to do a remix of his 2017 song “Famous” to benefit the Suubi Center, a maternity and children’s clinic in Uganda.
“Me coming from Morocco in North Africa, I feel like it should be a soft spot for anyone that has a mother or a child,” Montana said in an interview with CNN. “I think that’s got to be one of the worst things: not having the right healthcare. When I went to Uganda I felt obligated to help.”
