With Christmas just three days away, 21 Savage decided it was time to bring some holiday cheer to children in Atlanta who may not be in the best spirits. The “A Lot” emcee reportedly helped to fulfill the requests of a few kids in the city.

According to TMZ, children at the Wade Walker Park Family YMCA penned letters that informed Santa of their wish lists. With a monetary contribution from the “Bank Account” rapper, the nonprofit organization was able to purchase the mentioned gifts as well as 12. lbs turkeys and side dishes, bringing smiles to 30 kids and their families — all of whom practiced social distancing rules.

21 Savage is the latest artist to give back to underprivileged children in his community ahead of the Christmas holiday. Over the weekend, NLE Choppa and Moneybagg Yo took to Memphis, Tennessee to gift kids with bikes and loads of toys from a U-Haul truck.

Gunna also hosted his third annual Gunna’s Great Giveaway in front of a Walmart, and 50 Cent surprised Houston fans with a donation to the city’s Christmas Eve Super Feast.

“You make more, you give more back,” 50 said during a press conference on Thursday (Dec. 17). “They already have the foundation in this community built, so I was able to just make the collaboration... so you know it’s real as soon as you get in there.”

In the most extravagant giveaway yet, Roddy Ricch took his role as Compton’s Santa Claus pretty seriously, flying into the neighborhood in a helicopter and distributing presents to several families.

“No news coverage, no other ‘media’ outlets, not one ‘journalist’ in attendance,” Real 92.3 radio host DJ Hed tweeted. “It don’t matter, my bros toy drive was a huge success in Compton today. A 2 mile line of cars for the city! Salute my young homie #RoddyRicch & #Bird for another win! @RoddyRicch #TheCoastGuard.”
