Over the last week, rappers have been doing some serious giving back in the spirit of Thanksgiving.

On Monday (Nov. 23), Quavo hosted an Atlanta turkey drive alongside Gopuff and Feeding America. For the occasion, the Quavo Huncho artist took photos with fans and, of course, handed out turkeys to folks who pulled up.

“No Matter How Far U Go U Gotta Take It Back To Where It Begin,” Quavo wrote in the caption for an Instagram post documenting the drive. “Happy Thanksgiving Thanks To My Partners @gopuff @feedingamerica For Making This A Successful Day On The Nawf!!”

Meanwhile, two days later, 42 Dugg linked with the Pure Heart Foundation — an organization that works to support the families of the incarcerated — for a turkey drive in his native Detroit. In addition to the drive, he also gave children a holiday shopping spree. 

“I know this is a tough time for kids, I just want to be a helping hand where ever I can,” Dugg told Fox 2 Detroit

Fivio Foreign and DreamDoll, who collaborated on Dream’s 2020 single “Ah Ah Ah,” took up a cause similar to Dogg’s, teaming up with Million Dollar Drive By in a partnership with Children of Promise to serve up Thanksgiving meals for children affected by mass incarceration. This event unfolded on Tuesday.

For his part, Kodak Black bought 5,000 turkeys for families in Florida, spending $14,500 to complete the deed.

In another touching moment, Young Dolph supporters followed through with his Memphis turkey giveaway last Friday, two days after the rapper was shot and killed in Memphis’ Makeda’s Cookies.

“We did what he would have wanted us to do,” Dolph’s artist Snupe Bandz told ABC’s local Memphis affiliate. “To keep it going and do what he would have done.”
