Birdman offers to pay May rent for residents in Uptown New Orleans
Birdman is taking care of his former neighborhood.
Birdman is stepping up to help the people of his community in Louisiana during COVID-19.
The hip hop mogul took to Instagram to announce that he is offering to pay next month’s rent for an entire neighborhood where he was raised in New Orleans.
“I would like 2 offer to pay everybody rent for [the] month of May (for those in need) in [the] residents’ area of UPTOWN New Orleans where I was born and raised at,” he wrote.
Birdman then thanked multiple people for helping him accomplish this huge gesture. He also sent a special thank you to those on the frontlines who work in hospitals.
“I also wanna thank all hospitals on [the] front lines risking [their lives] to save lives,” he continued. “I wanna thank everybody that works with the Gladys and Johnny Foundation [and] my company Cash Money Records.”
Master P has also offered help to the people of New Orleans. Anyone over the age of 60 in his hometown can sign up for their home to be deep cleaned. They can also receive two types of hand sanitizers. The senior citizens will just have to show their IDs to receive the free services.
“My thing is, a lot of people forget about the elderly and a lot of the elderly are the ones that are getting hit hard,” Master P said in a video to TMZ. “We are losing a lot of the elderly in the community and my thing is, making sure we go out and get them groceries and making sure that we make monetary donations to them.”
Master P’s Team Hope Foundation is also giving senior citizens monetary donations, groceries, water, toilet tissue, house cleaning supplies and other necessities during the pandemic. The supplies are on a first-come, first-served basis.
