It’s been three months since Kanye West has tweeted anything, let alone shared support for the Black Lives Matter movement, but the controversial artist has instead decided to let his money do the talking with over $2 million USD in donations.
According to Variety, Kanye’s representation revealed that he has given $2 million to the families of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, who died at the hands of police in Georgia and Louisville, respectively. He also pledged to cover the families’ legal costs.
Kanye has also set up a college fund to cover tuition for George Floyd’s six-year-old daughter Gianna. Further, he also pledged to aid Black-owned businesses in Chicago with financial contributions.
Despite his absence from social media, it’s been a big week for Kanye. Forbes unveiled their list of “The Celebrity 100,” offering the highest paid musicians of 2020. Kanye came out on top, with $170 million USD in earnings for the year.
The rapper is also reportedly working on a new album called God’s Country.
