ATLANTA (AP) — Grammy-nominated rapper Jeezy went from handing out meals to performing in front of a sold-out crowd in Atlanta.
Jeezy took the stage at the Tabernacle on Wednesday night hours before he helped handout 200 boxes of food. The meals included turkey or ham, corn green beans, stuffing, rolls and cranberry sauce at Mt. Sanai Baptist Church. He held the event through his Street Dreamz Foundation.
