Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan serves as one of a number of Hip Hop acts who have given back this holiday week. But according to Quan, he’s helped feed the hungry and homeless this entire month in the hopes of adding a literal twist to his typically music-oriented “feed the streets” campaign.
While speaking with Complex.com, the Southern lyricist revealed that he’s helped in collecting goods in his hometown of Atlanta and even volunteered to feed the hungry while in New York.
“When I’m dropping a tape we just been giving back anyway,” said Quan. “This whole month. Like in Atlanta we been feeding. We got all the kids bringing back canned goods, and all the high schools in Atlanta. You know what I mean? We got all the high schools participating and bringing canned goods. So, we can give back. So, everyone can feel excited about this mixtape. Then up here we feeding the hungry today…This whole month our campaign been ‘feed the streets.’ Not just with music, but literally feeding the streets. God blesses you to bless others.”
Quan’s interview comes on the heels of the release of his I Promise I Will Never Stop Going In mixtape. Released this week, the 17-track project is hosted by DJ Drama and includes production from The Yardeez, FKI, and more.
Well-known for his Yung Carter-produced track “Type Of Way,” Quan recently spoke on a perceived feud with fellow Atlanta artist Future. During an appearance on “RapFix Live” last week, Quan commented on his record “A Nigga” and shot down any rumors of the song dissing Future.
“In that, where did I diss Future?” said Quan. “I never dissed him. I never disrespected him as a man. I never disrespected him as a man, but, you know, blogs will take stuff and blow it out of proportion…It’s clarification. There’s no beef.”
