(AllHipHop News) Recently, 2 Chainz has received some criticism from C-Murder. The Georgia native is staying focused and continues to invest his time into worthy causes. Last week, Mr. 4 Bracelets announced the upcoming Watch Out tour. In addition to his music, the altruistic rapper is sharing his blessing through his charity, the TRU Foundation. Yesterday (Jan. 19), in a video posted to YouTube, the "I'm Different" rapper announced that he donated a home to an Atlanta family of 11.

That grateful father described his angst, "We ain't know where we was gonna go." He went on and spoke on his surprise, "We was not looking forward to nothing like this. It is way over our head, but we gonna learn how to deal with it. But we thank God for it. Now we don't have to cry no more. We don't have to worry nothin' no more."
After visiting a fundraising page set up by the Atlanta's Progression Church 2 Chainz discovered information about the family's precarious plight. "This right here ain't gonna save me taxes; it's in the beginning of the year. I'm looking forward to seeing their smiles," he stated before adding, "I'm looking forward to the kids growing up knowing that Uncle 2 Chainz came through. Keep praying. You gotta have faith. You gotta believe."
The TRU Foundation worked to bless the family with a two story home. It boasts five bedrooms. Check out the full video to find out how the family reacted.
Will 2 Chainz' actions inspire other MCs to go beyond the bars and give back to their communities?

(AllHipHop News) The long-awaited mixtape, The Magnificent 757's, from veteran musician Stevie J, and Hip-Hop businessman, Benzio, is scheduled to be released. The postponed project will be available Friday night (Jan. 22), as confirmed by a press release. Big Kap and Armadale Vodka have been instrumental to helping secure the release date.
In the past, both Stevie J and Benzio appeared on the hit reality show, Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta. The dynamic duo, were once as close as brothers. When their relationship deteriorated so did their desire to pursue the project. Looking past their personal drama, Big Kap - who was once Biggie Smalls' DJ - rescued the situation.
Bridging the gap between Hip-Hop, Jazz, and Big Band, the soulful mixtape is everything "all wrapped up in one." Acclaimed singer, Money Marquise, teams up with Stevie J and Benzino to create a standout track. Although Stevie J and Benzino's reality-based drama once detoured their project, Big Kap went on to state, "Now I know what happened between them on Love & Hip-Hop, but I'm not here for that. I'm just here to bring you some dope music, and the album's definitely that."
The world renowned turntableist then suggests that The Magnificent 757's could perhaps foster reconciliation between Stevie J. and Benzino. Will this project help to resurrect the bro-mance between Stevie J and 'Zino?
