In SummaryRapper Bobby Shmurda took 2,000 backpacks filled with supplies to New York City schools, and the rapper shared an uplifting message for the kids on YouTube.
Rapper Bobby Shmurda recently donated school supplies to several public schools within New York City.
The supplies were dropped off at the three elementary schools in Brooklyn, an all-boys middle school in Harlem, and a high school in the Bronx. The backpacks were filled with pencils, pencils cases, pens, notebooks, folders and highlighters.
After donating these items, the rapper made an uplifting video message and made a special request to young scholars, which was played at the schools.
“Please do not give your mommas no trouble this year,” the 27-year-old Brooklyn rapper said in the short clip. “And please do not give your teachers no trouble this year.”
Shmurda continued, “I want to say that I’m proud of y’all for being brave, for being strong, and for staying in school. Always remember you guys are unstoppable. You can do anything you set your mind to.”
The philanthropic endeavor was completed just days after Drake announced Shmurda as the face for the newest collaboration between OVO and the NBA. This new collection is set to be a part of the fall/winter 2021 edition of the clothing line, and it will have clothes showcasing Shmurda with New York Knicks attire.
