This is really good news!
G Herbo decided to give back to his community in a major way. The Chicago rapper went back to his old elementary school, Overton Elementary School, that has been closed down since 2013. G Herbo bought the school and will turn it into a community center. He ultimately plans on turning into a multimedia facility where rappers, producers, and other creatives can develop, Hot New Hip Hop reports.
G Herbo’s fellow friends, Joey Purp, Chance The Rapper, and Vic Mensa attended the event. They also handed out backpacks filled with school supplies to over 2,000 kids, according to the article. They also marched, provided free COVID-19/HIV testing, and had a station to register people to vote.
Reported in the article, G Herbo said,
“This is just about being able to lead by example for the next generation. We’re really just trying to change the narrative and lead by example … and show the next generation that they can do what we’re doing even greater. We’re not saying we’re going to see drastic change tomorrow, but if we keep this up, there’s limitless opportunities and it’s limitless where we can go.”
This is so amazing, salute G Herbo!
“Make the hood great again.”
