Kid Cudi continues to prove just how big his heart is.

On Friday (April 19), the "Frequency" rapper extended his generosity by ordering $10k worth of Popeyes from Postmates to be delivered to the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission. The homeless shelter provides two free meals to the public and three free meals to its residents each day in Indio, California.

Items on the menu from Cudi's mega order reportedly included biscuits, mashed potatoes, fries, and fried chicken, of course. The Ohio native's good deed served hundreds of people ahead of his second set at Coachella on Saturday (April 20).

During his Saturday performance, Cudi was joined by Kanye West who treated the crowd to "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1" and "Ghost Town" from The Life of Pablo and his most recent album, Ye. The longtime collaborators also performed "Reborn" and "Freeee (Ghost Town, Pt. 2)" from their joint LP, Kids See Ghosts, released last Summer.

Cudi returned the favor when he showed up for West's Sunday Service the next morning (April 21). The "spiritual" experience was reportedly attended by 50,000 people.

Last month, Cudi made headlines for hosting an impromptu screening of "Us" for his fans. The 35-year-old rapper was so impressed with the movie that, after tweeting out his praises of the film and its director, Academy Award-winner Jordan Peele, he invited his core fans to meet him at a movie theater in Glendale, LA to watch the horror flick for free.

As if that weren't enough to make you love him even more, Cudi has announced plans to drop new solo music this year. Last October, he took to Twitter to share the exciting news. "I just started the new album! Taking my time [with] it tho but im thinkin next year sometime? Would that be cool? Huh? Tell me? Would that be ok?" he tweeted. He also teased "tasty features comin out soon in the meantime."

We, for one, can't wait to see what Cudi does next.
