Which rappers come home and show love?
Though Diddy is known for the bling, the ballin’, and the lavish parties where many a bottle of Ciroc is poured over the tight body of a model or two, he’s actually very active when it comes to charity.
From giving proceeds from his clothing line, Sean Jean, to breast cancer awareness, to running the New York marathon, raising nearly $2 million for public schools, to providing scholarships for underprivileged inner city youth, Puff can’t stop. Won’t stop.
The original beat doctor has become the most successful hip hop entrepreneur to date. With the sale of his Beats brand headphones valued at around $3 billion, he’s been making serious power moves to help out all over.
Since nearly becoming a billionaire, he donated $70 million to the University of Southern California to help start a new major that focuses on marketing, product design, business, and development.
Everyone’s favorite droopy eyed, smooth talking O.G. rapper, Snoop Dog has been involved in charity for over a decade.
One of his more original charitable efforts was the money he raised for Habitat for Humanity by auctioning off “An Hour with Snoop.” This was a program where people bid on the opportunity to kick it with snoop for an hour, and it raised a healthy sum to help people get homes.
