Giving Back: Chinx Is Helping Out Single-Parent Homes For Chinxmas

It’s the season of giving, and Coke Boys rapper Chinx will be doing just that this Christmas! I mean, this Chinxmas! Every day during the month of December, Chinx will be giving multiple prize packs to select fans who post proof of download of his projects with the hashtag #Chinxmas. It doesn’t stop there, however! Aside from the prize packs, Chinx will provide “family fun days” for children in single parent homes who really need some cheer during the holiday season. “I come from a single-parent home,” explains Chinx, “Though my mom did the best job she could of trying to get us things we wanted, I’m sure she could have used some help! This is my way giving back and helping a few families that really need it.” How sweet is that? To partake in the contest, Chinx will be accepting submissions over the next 12 days. Participants are encouraged to submit videos or letters showing why their family (or a family they know) deserves this special family fun day with Chinx. Rules to the 12 Days of Chinxmas below!

(Photos) Machine Gun Kelly Gives Back To Students In Queens, NY

The media always focuses on the crazy antics of most of our favorite artists, so when they do something positive, I always try to highlight it! Machine Gun Kelly’s ‘No Class Tour’ rolled through the Big Apple last night, and after a night of partying in celebration of Kells’ road manager Dre’s birthday and the 2-year anniversary of Kells’ debut album Lace Up, the EST crew made their way out to Queens to hang out with the kids this afternoon. “Cooked up 3 big trays of chicken and beef sliders, and gave em away to the kids getting out of school today at Burgandy’s Cafe,” MGK wrote on Instagram. “Good food for good kids.” Looks like the kids were truly appreciative! [No word on K’s cooking skills just yet though. Ha!] More pics in the gallery. The ‘No Class Tour‘ continues tomorrow night in Boston.

Among the supporters was Questlove, who was also on hand to DJ. “This morning I took a stand for kids’ education, because every child deserves a good school and a great education,” Quest said in a statement.

Before boarding a flight to Philly to surprise the audience at Drake’s ‘Would You Like A Tour?’ stop, Big Sean brought some Holiday cheer to the Children’s Hospital in his hometown of Detroit. Along with his mother Myra, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper spent some time with the kids and had quite a great time doing so. “These kids are some of the nicest people I’ve met!” Sean wrote on Instagram. “We are working on something special for them for the holidays from our Foundation. Remember to count your blessings. We all are blessed! Straight up!” He also had to take time to thank his mother, who put together and runs his charity, The Sean Anderson Foundation. “Love to my mom. I honestly wouldn’t do half of the cool things I do to give back to kids or people in need if it wasn’t for her teaching n telling me why it’s so important. I truly have an awesome ,caring mom… n that’s something a lot of people don’t have. I’m so happy she is my partner in the Sean Anderson Foundation.” Check out pics in the gallery!
