It’s always nice when our hip-hop community meets our “giving back” community. For successful rapper Rick Ross, the same can be said.
Ricky Rozay has recently partnered with Southern Crescent Habitat For Humanity to help expand his charitable work, and this past weekend, the bawse visited the organization’s first Fayette County project, where Ross lives.
The Fayette project, funded by The Home Depot Foundation, is a home repair initiative for a US Veteran and Fayetteville resident, Steve Jacobs. The on-site discussion highlighted the need of affordable housing and home repairs in the Fayette County area, which Ross took serious interest in after hearing Jacobs’ story.
Afterward, Ross spoke with Southern Crescent Habitat’s partner families Chatara Brumfield and Retonda Tate to hear about the trials and tribulations they both went through. Very candidly, Ross said, “Anything that I can do [to help], I want to do it.”
Ross then walked over to the build site where they were putting the final touches on Jacobs’ home. Ross even assisted with the paint job, grabbing a brush of his own.
