Wallo is giving back in a major way this Thanksgiving, though his plans to help almost got foiled before they even started.
In a post to Instagram on Thanksgiving morning (November 24), the Million Dollaz Worth of Game host pulled up to a Philadelphia Target with plans to let 15 women shop until they drop. “I’m taking 15 ladies,” he says in the video. “Y’all gon’ go in Target, y’all gon’ get two carts. I don’t care what you put in the cart! I’m buying it.”
Unfortunately, he found out moments later that the Target was closed for the holiday – but that didn’t stop him. A few women started pulling up after he put out the post, and instead he blessed them with cash.
“Target is actually closed today, but obviously I’m still out here slapping it into they pocket like a rocket,” Wallo said in a second post. “I’m tryna tell you gentlemen – take ‘em to Target. They love Target.”
Clearly passionate about helping the community, Wallo was actually moved to tears earlier this year when he urged Lil Durk and the OTF family to end the street violence and any feuds they might be involved in.
“I can name 20 or 30 n-ggas of my homies that’s dead, but I’m here though,” Wallo said in an episode of the podcast that Durk was a guest for. “I forgave my brother’s killer. I’m saying that to say this: My brother died in my grandma’s arms in the house we grew up in… They shot my brother and he died in nanny’s arms when she opened the door.
“If I didn’t let that shit go, I wouldn’t be right here today for my nieces and nephews and me and Gillie wouldn’t be doing this. Y’all wouldn’t know me… I had to let that shit go. When I let that shit go, I started to grow and I started to glow. It was harder than a muthafucka.”
Wallo’s podcast partner Gillie Da Kid also recently weighed in on the violence that has been plaguing the Hip Hop community, specifically the shooting death of Migos rapper TakeOff.
The rapper-turned-podcast host voiced his disgust with those who shared footage and clips from the scene of TakeOff’s death after he was shot and killed in Houston last month.
An animated Gillie took to his Instagram Story calling for change when it comes to “clowns” taking their phones out, recording and posting videos to social media when something tragic happens to a Black celebrity.
