A rapper who decided to give £25,000 to people from a homeless shelter has been slammed by critics after making the needy FIGHT each other for the money.
Ralo was determined to give $30,000 – around £25,000 – to the residents of a shelter in Atlanta, Georgia.
But instead of giving it to them directly, the 21-year-old posted video on His instagram page of him throwing the cash from the sunroof of his car, which looks to be a white BMW.
As the people scramble on the ground, men and women fight each other to grab the dollar bills from the ground.
The rapper explained online: “F** going to the strip club, all the n***** wit money let’s go to all the homeless shelters and make it rain on the poor people…” He hashtagged #RALOHOMELESSCHALLENGE.
According to the Antlanta Black Star , Ralo – born Terrell Davis – was locked up 34 times between the ages of 12-19 and reportedly made $12 million – around £9.8 million – in just one year by selling drugs until he left that behind two years ago, telling, “I’d rather be broke and free than rich and in jail.”
Ralo and his crew are heard laughing on the shocking video, which has seen commenters split on the method of handing over his cash to desperate people.
One said: “This is some of the most degrading self serving behavior I have ever seen,” while another added: “At least hand them the money bro, this is too ignorant my dude.”
Yet another posted: “I’m disgusted watching this. Give it to them the same way you got it. In your hand.”
A supporter said: “Keep doing what u doing,” with another adding: “I salute you homie this the realest s*** I’ve seen done instead of handing out a dollar.”
Ralo himself has posted defending his actions: “No matter how much good you do, they still gone say some bad bout you.
“I get 10k just to perform in the club why the hell I can’t give back to the needy. I been making it rain in the clubs all my life AN ain’t nobody neva said s*** bout that but when I give it to those that really need it, it’s a problem.
“Ain tell nobody to laugh nor did I tell anyone to fight over the money. I went to several different shelters that day AN did the same thing.”
He also said he plans on repeating the event in the future.
