A$AP Rocky donated 120 meals to a New York homeless shelter where he and his mother once stayed.
According to TMZ, on Wednesday, November 25, the rapper personally delivered the 120 meals to the Regent Family Residence, a shelter located on the Upper West Side in New York City, where he and his mother, Renee Black, once resided during the early 2000s. The shelter currently serves 83 families, including 111 kids.
A$AP has previously opened up about living in a homeless shelter.
In 2013, speaking to MTV News, he said, “There was a lot of hard times in this place, but it’s not the end of the world because life is what you make it. [There’s] people out there who got it better, but this is a place that helps women get on their feet — with government assistance and before you know it, things are alright.”
“It’s no different than living in the projects, but it ain’t easy, and that’s when you start idolizing the drug dealers and the hustlers,” he continued. “If you’re from any kinda fucked up environment, you idolize stupid shit. Most people from that situation limit themselves when they idolize things, and it’s not about hard work about dedication. It’s about power and being rich.”
