Despite being notorious for his heavily featured albums and “no nonsense-taking” antics, The Game isn’t afraid to play Superman when it comes to showing love and dropping a few stacks towards a community in need. The Compton rapper’s red cape made its most recent appearance this morning (Jan. 26) after he announced that he’s having $1 million worth of water delivered to Flint, MI.
“The truth is that the population of Flint is 105,000 people & it takes more than 9 bottles per person a day just to use to brush their teeth, bathe, and cook with…,” Game expressed via Instagram.
With the help of Avita Water, the first wave of the donation (1400 cases) drops today at 1 p.m. at Food Bank East Michigan on Flint’s south side. The rest will be delivered every day until the city receives 1 million bottles.
In true Game fashion, a little shade had to accompany his gracious donation. He called out people who are using the tragedy for their own gain and even challenged Madonna and Jimmy Fallon to donate more.
With Michigan’s governor (Rick Snyder) moving extremely slow to correct the problem and past city officials continuously pointing fingers, it’s no surprise that the industry has taken matters into its own hands.
Salute to Game and others who have made contributions.
