Rap stars ScHoolboy Q and Russ are stepping up for small businesses. After a cheesesteak restaurant was recently vandalized and destroyed in Los Angeles, the pair have donated some major money to make sure they stay afloat.
ScHoolboy x Cheesesteaks
ScHoolboy has sent $10,000 to Big Dave’s Cheesesteaks. This money will ensure they have enough funds to stay in business while they repair.
“My deepest appreciation @groovyq, for donating another 10k to make sure we are able to support ourselves in the upcoming months. Appreciate you @karenCivil for help facilitating and making this happen for us!RIP #georgefloyd”
Russ donated double the amount to help pay for repairs. The money will also go towards paying employees.
“Thank you @Russ for donating 20k to help reopen & help cover employee wages, while we are closed. I appreciate you calling me and giving me words of encouragement.”
Wait, There’s More
Music superstars Drake and The Weeknd are giving back as well. After being called upon by Canadian poet and songwriter Mustafa the Poet, they’ve stepped up and provided some serious money for the movement against racial inequality.

Before You Go
The Weeknd gave even more than Drake. He gave $200,000 to the Black Lives Matter Global Network, $100,000 to the National Bail Out Fund, and another $200,000 to the Know Your Right Camp.
“keep supporting our brothers and sisters out there risking everything to push for actual change for our black lives. Urging everyone with big pockets to give and give big and if you have less please give what you can even if it’s a small amount. #blacklivesmatter (links in story)”
