We all know that rappers often get a bad rep with the press. Accusations of criminal activity, encouraging violence, or just plain bad behavior are common for hip hop artists. Selfless and generous acts by hip hop stars seldom get the coverage or attention they deserve.

A lot of rappers are vocal about their struggle and hard times, but what happens once they make it big? Mainstream rappers make a lot of mula, that's a fact.  It says a lot when they go out of their way to help members of the community who are not as fortunate. Whether it is financial contributions, supporting their fans, or saving lives, we prove that underneath their chains, Versace and expensive kicks, many have a heart of gold.
