A “Lil Positivity”: Akon, Big Boi and Ludacris are Giving Back to Families for Thanksgiving

- By Bossip Staff Categories: A "Lil Positivity", News, Seen on the Scene

Celebrities are really stepping up for the holidays, well at least in Atlanta. Akon, Big Boi and Ludacris had a food drive yesterday, handing out 2000 turkeys, greens, sweet potatoes and the fixings to go with it to families that are less fortunate so that they will be able to have food on the table for Thanksgiving.

With people still feeling the effects of the recession, this is definitely a gesture that has brought smiles to a lot of families that are in need.

    I’m sorry…just have to be Debbie Downer. But while I appreciate their efforts. I think showing up in their overly priced vehicles is kind of tactless.

    Is Akon married to a bunch of African women or not? I think he’s cute, but I can’t fantasize unless he’s single.

  • white male

    I like how that one guy drives a lamborghini to give turkeys out to the homeless

  • valerie

    All of the entertainers in atlanta support Kasim Reed. There was a big fundraiser that Akon’s label headed, all the celebs were there. JD, Monica, Keri Hilson, Polow, and the rest of the celebs that are pictured on here week after week, too bad you didn’t coverage of that.

  • Please

    Hell yeah!!! We need more of this. Good looking out Luda, Akon and Big Boi. Now this some stuff that makes a brother feel good. Lord knows people out there need all the help they can get.

    Wish more Rappers would step up to the plate. Where you at Jay Z…..50?

  • ohnoudient

    Just want to say I love these brothers. The money is irrelevant to them probably, but the time they took to do it says it all, and it showed their kids what REAL men do. xoxoxoxox

    @ Jer z girl, what you fantasizing about??? Hmmmmm I wanna know…

  • it's Me

    that’s a good look for those guys… They got it, so spend it, beside it can be a tax write off!!!!!!!

  • devil's advocate

    thats cuz they’re the only rappers making money now…

  • REALITY

    I`m glad some rappers are stepping up and giving back to their community. It shows at least some of them have hearts and can think of others rather than making it rain on hoes at strip joints.. that’s whatsup!

  • A*GAME BEAUTY

    I NEVER EVER POST COMMENTS ON BLOG SITES, BUT THIS TIME I FELT I HAD TO….. WHY DOES THIS STORY HAVE ONLY 21 COMMENTS????? THIS IS A LIL POSITIVITY FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY AND YET WE DON’T EVEN COMMEND THESE BROTHERS FOR DOING SOMETHING POSITIVE. WOOOOW! SMH

  • Sue

    @ A*Game Beauty I was thinking the same thing. It’s ashame when black people do good things it goes barely unnoticed but let them have gotten arrested or anything negative and there would be hundreds of post. For all the people talking about what type of car they are driving so what they are helping out people. What r u doing?

  • Sheneneh

    Ludacris has really been doing a lot of charity work lately..it’s a nice thing to see.

  • jenna12

    Akon is not fooling anyone. Luda and Big Boi are sincere.

  • the lioness
