Rapper 21 Savage has been recognised with a Community Impact Award for his philanthropic efforts during the holiday season. The artist’s Leading By Example Foundation (LBE) collaborated with the Wade Walker Park Family YMCA to organise a Christmas toy giveaway for nearly 80 families in the Atlanta area. This marks the fifth consecutive year that 21 Savage and his foundation have spearheaded this charitable initiative.
During the award presentation, attended by 21 Savage’s manager Justin “Meezy” Williams and State Representative Billy Mitchell, the rapper was lauded for his commitment to the community. The Community Impact Award, accepted by Savage’s mother Heather Joseph, acknowledged the rapper and LBE for their significant role in enhancing the lives of local children.
In a similar vein of holiday generosity, Kendrick Lamar returned to his hometown to support the Christmas In Compton Toy Giveaway at Enterprise Park on December 18. The event saw Lamar engaging with fans of all ages, capturing moments in his hometown. Fellow industry figures, including Interscope Records co-founder Jimmy Iovine and rapper Jay Worthy, also attended, expressing admiration for Lamar’s community engagement.
Notably, Fivio Foreign and Lil Tjay added a unique touch to the festive season by transforming Wham!’s “Last Christmas” into a drill anthem, spreading Christmas cheer in their own distinctive style.
