Kodak Black may be in rehab, but that did not stop him from organizing a turkey giveaway for several South Florida communities just in time for Thanksgiving. 

The Tunnel Vision rapper paid more than $14,500 to buy 5,000 turkeys that were given away by his volunteer team, according to TMZ.

The Pompano Beach, Florida, rapper’s bird handout for Thanksgiving made at least seven stops in three days with his team distributing the turkeys from the back of rental trucks, according to his attorney, Bradford Cohen. 

Black has a history of giving back to the community, even with his troubled past. 

He lamented that he would have enjoyed personally giving a helping hand on the turkey distribution but wanted to focus on his rehab so he can continue to support underprivileged communities in the future, the TMZ article stated. 

The turkeys were handed out in South Florida communities located in Sistrunk, Sunland, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, North Miami, Little Haiti in Miami and Golden Acres in Pompano Beach, where Kodak grew up.
