Last Friday (December 23), the rapper (real name: Kiari Cephus) held the event in his hometown to help underprivileged kids, as reported by Fox 5.
It is said that Cephus addressed the crowd, saying, «I wanted to give back to my community.» A sincere «thank you» goes out to the children and teenagers of today for their unending love, patience, and support. Because of you, I can hold my head high. It’s no secret that we’ve been through some difficult times, but I want you to know that God is still good.»
In a separate interview with Fox 5, Cephus made the following statements: «I am looking forward to the day when celebrities will give something back to the community and, you know, do their best to make sure that the children get to where they need to be.
A key to the city of Lawrenceville, Georgia, the county seat of Gwinnett County, was delivered to Cephus by Mayor David Still at the occasion. Lawrenceville is a suburb of Atlanta. In response to the recognition, the rapper posted on Instagram, «I’m going to make sure that I do more for my community, not just holidays or a one-time event.
Thank God that He has given me the ability to help other people; this capacity is more than a gift; it is essential to make the National Association of Women in Finance (NAWF), my home organization, a better place for everyone.
In addition to being a present, it contributes to my efforts to make the NAWF a more pleasant place for everyone. For this reason, I want to express my gratitude to God.
Migos member Cephus came up about the death of his cousin and bandmate Takeoff (aka Kirshnik Ball) on November 1 in Houston, Texas. Cephus released a touching obituary for Ball and postponed the publication of Father Of 4 following his passing.
Cephus played a set of Migos’ classics, including «Fight Night» and «Bad and Boujee,» and tossed bills into the crowd as a memorial to Ball during his first performance since Ball’s death, a late-night club engagement in Miami.
