Kodak Black is trying to remind everyone that he’s more than just negative controversy … and he’s doling out cash for kids in need.
TMZ reports the rapper heard about a teen’s quest to get a notebook in the hands of all 7,600 students in the Cleburne Independent School District in Texas. 14-year-old Paige Cook had a successful first campaign last year … collecting 40k pencils.
Paige’s mom, Angel, says her daughter upped her game this year with the notebooks AND 60k pencils. But, with such an ambitious goal, it was clear she was gonna need some help. Enter, Kodak.
Bradford Cohen, Kodak’s attorney, says Kodak picked up the tab — a cool $12,500 — for the notebooks. The items will benefit a school district where a majority of its students come from low-income communities.
Kodak’s no stranger to taking on a good cause … he’s played Santa before and donated cash for early childhood education. At the time, he said he was focused on making a positive impact.
But, as you know … Kodak’s public image has taken hit after hit … from beefing with Lil Wayne and disrespecting Lauren London to his border bust, which triggered a U.S. Attorney investigation.
