COVID-19 has disrupted the lives of people around the world and led to thousands of deaths.
In the United States alone, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports 20,486 deaths as of April 12.
The Hip Hop community hasn’t been spared from the coronavirus either as notable artists such as Scarface, Slim Thug and Fred The Godson tested positive for COVID-19. In response to the pandemic, many rappers have been donating money and supplies to the relief efforts.
