It’s that time of year for showing the community how much you care about them through charity work. And that’s what[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Lil Wayne[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Birdman[/lastfm] have been doing for the past 15 years in New Orleans.

According to HiphopDX.com:

Weezy shows his humanitarian side, as he gives back to the city where he grew up.

Just days before Thanksgiving, Lil Wayne took time to bring some holiday cheer to his hometown of New Orleans.

Along with Birdman, Wayne handed out Turkeys to the public, a yearly Cash Money tradition.

“It’s actually been my first time back here for the past eight or nine years, and they’ve been doing this for 15 years,” Wayne admitted in an interview with MTV News. “I haven’t been back here to do this for so long just being super busy, just always on tour.”

“Those times I did it years ago, I was just a kid and I was just doing it because Baby and Slim, we were giving away turkeys at a park and that’s what we were doin’,” added Wayne. “Now it’s a totally different feeling, because I can actually give you that and say, ‘Here, happy Thanksgiving.’ I can do that, and I can provide that for you. That’s a different feeling in general, and it’s a beautiful feeling overall.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

‘Tis the season of giving to those less fortunate than yourself. Too bad most of us don’t do that all year!
