Meek Mill wants to use some of the $1.5 million in proceeds that Lil Baby is donating to several organizations for his own cause.

The “Dreams and Nightmares” emcee took to Twitter to ask if he could use some of the money to build a recreation center for the youth in his hometown. “Let me get a lil, but for a rec center in my hood for WiFi and computers & I’ll swap a favor for your hood too!” he tweeted on Tuesday (Nov. 24).

His tweet comes just hours after the “Emotionally Scarred” rapper shared that he would be donating the funds made from his hit single “The Bigger Picture” to several organizations.

“I got 1.5 million dollars to donate off of ‘Bigger Picture.’ I want the money to go where it’s needed,” he tweeted. “I don’t want to donate to just any organization, but I will be letting my fans kno exactly we’re the money goes,” he wrote in a follow-up tweet. “Lawyers, bonds, playgrounds, jobs, youth activities, things that WE can really benefit off of.”

Meek is known to always help out in his community. Last year, he teamed up with Michael Rubin to donate millions of dollars to schools in Pennsylvania. “We care about education a lot,” Rubin said. “I don’t know if you guys saw, Meek and I have been talking a lot about education. We’re actually gonna commit, between Meek and I, in Pennsylvania, millions of dollars to Pennsylvania schools this year.”

The Championships rapper also partnered with Malcom Jenkins of the Philadelphia Eagles to bring attention to victims of police brutality and gun violence. They hosted a town hall to discuss the policing in Philadelphia. “We are in this together,” Meek tweeted, along with a clip of their PSA centered around Danroy “DJ” Henry, who was fatally shot at 20 years old on October 17, 2010 by a police officer in Mount Pleasant, New York.
