Nas Saves Single Father Of 8 From Homelessness

illedout Members Posts: 8,194 ✭✭✭✭✭

Late last night, Nas started collecting funds for a single father of 8, Stanley Young, in D.C. whose house was destroyed in a fire

In the past few hours, Nas rallied 400+ people to pledge $29K+ in a viral fundraiser to save Young’s family.

Stanley Young is an unemployed construction worker and single father. Two weeks ago, a fire destroyed his home. His family is stuck in a hotel, but time is running out. They will be kicked out by August 13.

Nas wrote to his fans on social media:

I am also a single father, and we don’t get enough credit in this country. I’m committed to helping Stanley and his eight (yes 8!) kids. Moreover, I believe and hope that we should all, as a community, come together to help our fellow American men and women when they need us in desperate situations like this. See if you can’t find a few dollars to help the Youngs get back on their feet with me. We need to raise enough to extend their stay, and maybe even afford a down payment on a new house or something.

This is real. It is me. I’m putting in $5,000 myself. Never done something like this, but I have faith that our American community can pull together a miracle for this strong family who needs our help right now. We’ve already made our first, $20,000 goal, and I’ve put in another $5,000 on top.

    Money is great but the biggest thing Nas did by helping this family is making their story known around the country. Nas is that dude

    I can't stand these stupid ass 🤬 who will creep out the woodwork and try to label Nas a "Loser". You numbskulls run around in the streets talking about how you're down for your people, but continuously will do nothing for your community. Nas stands for something in times where most rappers like 2 Chainz make money off popping 🤬 and don't give a penny towards any-🤬 -thing !!! Nas = G.O.A.T.

    While you are right....Nas has taken mad Ls too. But this is powerful stuff right here.

    How about Nas comparing himself as a single father b/c he keeps having children with 🤬 to a guy with 8 kids from one wife, who died, and lost his home b/c his house got set on fire.
