The rapper gave back much more than just his thanks to his community for the holidays.

42 Dugg, who recently dodged a 10-year prison sentence, got to celebrate his birthday on Thanksgiving this year, but the Detroit rapper reaped his karma and ended up giving away more gifts than he received.

Dugg partnered with the Pure Heart Foundation, an organization in Detroit that seeks to “embrace children with incarcerated parents and empower them to break the cycle of generational involvement in the criminal justice system,” for a turkey giveaway that benefitted children whose parents are currently imprisoned.

The rapper distributed turkeys to over 100 families on Detroit’s East Side the day before Thanksgiving. He explained to the local news that he recognized that the holidays is an especially tough time without the presence of loved ones. 

“I know this is a tough time for kids. I just want to be a helping hand where ever I can,” said 42 Dugg to Fox2. 

The Detroit native went the extra mile and took the kids on an early holiday shopping spree following the turkey giveaway.

42 Dugg’s good deeds were one of the first of many gracious Thanksgiving contributions from the Hip Hop community.

Fat Joe also spent Thanksgiving Eve by giving back to his Bronx community, joining hands with his borough president to hand out over 1,000 bags of groceries outside of his newest Mott Haven store, Up NYC, which included stuffing, cranberries, rice, and beans to set the dinner table for the holiday.

Fivio Foreign followed in 42 Dugg’s footsteps by partnering with Million Dollar Drive By to serve Thanksgiving meals to children affected by mass incarceration. 

Quavo and Kodak Black also handed out turkeys. Quavo hosted a turkey drive in Atlanta and Kodak Black handed out over 5,000 turkeys in his home state of Florida.
