YG is unapologetically down for his Compton hometown as he’s always using his celebrity for the greater good to uplift his community. Especially during the holidays.

The Still Krazy rapper was recently spotted alongside Compton Mayor Aja Brown and his 4HundredWaze Foundation at the Douglas F. Dollarhide Community Center located at 301 N Tamarind Ave in efforts to feed the people for Thanksgiving.

Hundreds of citizens filled the building to get a warm home cooked soul food dinner which was served by YG, his mother, Mayor Brown and all the workers of the nonprofit organization.

“We just here to get everybody in the spirits and let them we out here supporting and helping them out,” he told URBN247’s cameras.

Mayor Brown was also appreciative of the rapper’s efforts, stating, “It’s really a labor of love and some people don’t have a home or a place where they can cook a warm meal so we’re thankful for the generosity of YG and the 4HundredWaze Foundation to feed the community and city of Compton.”

It was estimated that 500 families stepped into the community center to receive said generosity. The video highlights can be seen below. To donate to the 4HundredWaze Foundation, click here.
