It’s no secret that Uncle @snoopdogg has transcended into global mega-stardom and even though he’s busier than ever, our brother still finds time to give back to the Community in so many ways. Like a true OG, Uncle Snoop didn’t even flinch when I reached out to him about being part of my #MillionDollarPledge. Snoop and I are each donating $10,000 for a total of $20,000 to Mother’s Against Police Brutality. Mothers Against Police Brutality (MAPB) formed to unite mothers who have lost their children to police violence. MAPB is the new voice for justice for victims of police brutality and deadly force. They are a multi-racial, multi-ethnic coalition uniting mothers nationwide to fight for civil rights, police accountability, and policy reform. With such an alarmingly disproportionate number of African American and Hispanic men and women killed by police, it’s obvious why Snoop chose this organization. Thank you, Uncle Snoop for everything that you have done, and have yet to do, in entertainment as well as the community. Much continued success to you my brother.

Colin Kaepernick has been out of a job for quite some time, but the controversial former NFL quarterback hasn’t left the public eye. Nor has he neglected to honor his philanthropic #MillionDollarPledge to donate $1 million to charitable causes, despite losing his primary form of income.

By teaming up with famous friends like Sean “Diddy” Combs (AKA “Love“) and Stephen Curry, he’s managed to earn the GQ Citizen Of The Year honor he was awarded for taking his stand against police brutality and injustice while putting his money where his mouth is. In his latest push to live up to his pledge, he’s been posting $10,000 donations to various charitable causes hand-picked by entertainers and athletes, such as activist/actor Jesse Williams and Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant, who have matched them as part of his #10for10 social initiative.

The latest partner is none other than Long Beach rapper-businessman Snoop Dogg, whose own philanthropic efforts have flown somewhat under the radar. However, with his $10,000 donation to Mothers Against Police Brutality (MAPB), he may become one of the faces of “rappers doing good” for their communities in the face of criticism that hip-hop promotes negativity.

Kaepernick detailed the particulars of the donation and the charity in the caption for the video praising and thanking Snoop for his donation, allowing Snoop to return the favor in the video itself.
