Say what you will about his debatable rap talents, French Montana is using his success to pay it forward. The Bronx rapper was named a Global Citizen Ambassador for his work in Uganda

Reports TMZ:

The “Unforgettable” rapper received the honor at a ceremony in NYC Friday night. French filmed the music video for his 2017 hit with Swae Lee in Uganda where he witnessed the country’s healthcare hardships first hand.

French donated $100k to help build a hospital that provided appropriate resources to women who are pregnant.

His donation led to a chain reaction of others … The Weeknd, Diddy and Diddy’s Ciroc venture all matched his $100k and Global Citizen estimates some 260,000 people will benefit from the money raised.

Respect.
