Rapper and Chicago native Common has once again gone out of his way to help others. According to the Associated Press, Common has donated $10,000 to Renaissance School of the Arts in Harlem to aid in more supplies and science utensils.
“I always felt like one of my biggest duties and purposes is to hit the youth with something that’s inspiring,” he said, “hit young people with something that can motivate them to be in their greatness.”
Common hooked up with Burlington Stores and AdoptAClassroom.org to help bring supplies to schools. Dr. Mahalia Hines, Common's mother, was also in attendance for the presentation of the funds to speak on the lack of resources teachers endure each day.
