This past week, rap star Gunna announced a partnership with Goodr to bring clothes and groceries to his old middle school.
If you’re a fan of Gunna, now there is even more reason to love the “Drip Too Hard” rapper. One of the most popular hip-hop stars to come from his city Atlanta and his old middle school, we now have an even greater appreciation for him.
Gunna, formally known as Sergio Kitchens, visited his middle school in Atlanta to deliver the current students a heartwarming surprise. On Thursday, September 16 the rapper went to cut the ribbon announcing the opening of his store for students struggling from the implications of COVID-19.
While growing up, now rapper Gunna and his four siblings attended the middle school Ronald McNair Middle School in Fulton County, Georgia. Fulton is one of the poorest areas in Atlanta with many of the students eligible to receive free or reduced-price lunches.
In a partnership with Goodr, an Atlanta-based non-profit aiming to eliminate unnecessary food waste and hunger, Gunna opened Gunna’s Drip Closet and Goodr’s Grocery Store inside of the school. The name is inspired by the rapper’s known love for fashion and Grammy Nominated Song “Drip Too Hard”. Their new store will provide students with access to free food, clothes, toiletries, and shoes.
“These are things I said I was gonna do when I got in a position to do it so I just gotta follow that,” Gunna explained. “I want them to learn that you can be anyone you want to be, you can be anything you want to be because look at me. I did what I wanted to do and I went to the same school that they went to,” said Gunna to The Atlanta Voice.
In honor of Gunna’s generous actions and inspiring words, check out his latest release with Future below.
