Queens rapper Nas is helping one D.C. single father find a new home after he and his family of seven kids were displaced thanks to a fire.
Nas even started a crowdsourcing campaign to help Stanley Young, an unemployed construction worker.
I am also a single father, and we don’t get enough credit in this country. I’m committed to helping Stanley and his seven (yes 7!) kids. Moreover, I believe and hope that we should all, as a community, come together to help our fellow American men and women when they need us in desperate situations like this. See if you can’t find a few dollars to help the Youngs get back on their feet with me. We need to raise enough to extend their stay, and maybe even afford a down payment on a new house or something.
This is real. It is me. I’m putting in $5,000 myself. Never done something like this, but I have faith that our American community can pull together a miracle for this strong family who needs our help right now.
Nas said that if he reaches his goal of $20,000, he’ll give another $5,000. He’s already given $5,000 at the start of the campaign.
Don’t let Nas down.
