Superstar rapper Meek Mill played Santa on Christmas Eve and gave away $100,000 worth of toys to kids in Philadelphia.

“Just giving back to my neighborhood. This is where I grew up. We are able to do it so we are doing it,” the 31-year-old rapper shared with ABC affiliate WPVI. “My son can get toys for Christmas. But everybody can’t afford to be in a situation where they can have a good Christmas, so we wanted to bring Christmas back to our old neighborhood.”

He captioned a clip he shared on Instagram from the event, “100k in toys for Christmas right now in my hood at the king center right now!!! Merry Christmas!!” (RELATED: Meek Mill Brought Down The House At The 76ers Game Last Night [VIDEO])

Mill’s kindness comes on the heels of reports earlier this month that Kid Rock paid layaway balances for 350 Walmart customers in Nashville after he was inspired by actor/director Tyler Perry, who paid off more than $400,000 worth of layaway tabs at Walmarts in the Atlanta area.
