After catching heat for flushing away thousands of dollars down the toilet. Literally. Kodak Black is making amends.
The Pompano rapper returned to his old neighborhood on July 3rd to gift out A.C. Units to families that can’t afford one.
Kodak bought 100 A.C. units for around $12,500 and hand delivered the units to residents of the Golden Acres projects in Pompano Beach, Florida. The gesture brought some of the residents, who had been feeling the Florida heat wave to tears.
Florida at this time of the year is super hot. it’s in the high 80s right now and those numbers are expected to shoot up as the summer wears on, so Kodak’s philanthropic endeavors were timely.
“God [has] been with me when I had to take from people. Now that I’m blessed enough to to give back, that’s what I like to do. So, we out here passing out AC units, helping install them,” said Kodak. “We do it for the projects, the people relying on just enough cash to survive. Y’all come get y’all ACs. We out here.”
TMZ reports Kodak teamed up with community activist Francky Pierre, who runs the charity, Philanthropic Work and Outreach to help him handout the A.C units.
“Today, we went back to Golden Acres where Kodak grew up and passed out 100 AC units,” Pierre-Paul wrote on Instagram. “Kodak not only respects where he is from, but he values the people that looked out for him while he was there. He spoke on how HOT the summers can get and AC units was the very first thing he thought of, so we did it without any hesitation. When I got the call, I smiled because I know that his heart is pure and the love is real. I’m just blessed I get to be a part of the journey!!!”
The 24-year Haitian rapper released his “Haitian Boy Kodak” EP back in May. The 8-track effort included songs like “Round The Roses,” “Z Lock Jamaican,” and “Don’t Leave Me.”
