Lil Wayne has been dipping into his pockets to pull out $50,000 to renovate a local basketball court in his home city of New Orleans. The rapper was on hand amidst adding an extra 12 dates last week to his I am Music Tour to join in the party as the courts re-opened. Weezy also donated $200,000 to the N.O City Council to rebuild the Community Center within the Harrell Park, where the multi platinum rapper spent a lot of time growing up as a kid. All these donations were done through his One Family Foundation which launched in February 2008.
One Family Foundation Info – The organization will work to empower urban youth by providing opportunities to cultivate their talents and skills.
