After a year that resulted in him being detained in ICE custody for several days, 21 Savage has lots to celebrate this Thanksgiving. The Grammy nominee kicked off holiday food festivities on Tuesday (Nov. 26) and he did it all for a good cause.
The rapper served 300 Thanksgiving meals to needy families at the Dekalb County YMCA in Stone Mountain, Ga. The holiday menu featured the usual suspects: Turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy.

Through the organization, 21 Savage has spearheaded numerous charity events and outreach efforts including encourage financial literacy for teens, organizing back-to-school drives and advocating for automatic citizenship on behalf of migrant children.
Earlier in the month, 21 Savage spoke at an anti-gun violence event in Atlanta’s College Park neighborhood.
