Rapper 2 Chainz Is Continuing The Season Of Goodwill This Winter By Gifting A New Home To A Family Of 11 In Atlanta, Georgia.
The I'm Different star has been helping those in need through his charity, the TRU Foundation, and last year (15) he surprised one disabled soldier by paying his rent for a year, while also handing the keys to a new minivan to a poverty-stricken family.
Now 2 Chainz has revealed his latest act of giving after sharing video footage of himself donating a five bedroom house to a struggling family of 11, which had been facing eviction from its two-bedroom pad.
The rapper learned of the family's struggles via a fundraising page set up by officials at Atlanta's Progression Church to help save the parishioners' home, and he decided to step in to help out by setting them up with a new place and allowing them to live rent-free for a year.

A Judge Has Thrown Out A $10 Million (£6.3 Million) Lawsuit Filed Against Rapper 2 Chainz By A Fan For Insulting Her In A Viral Video.
Christine Chisholm launched legal action against the I'm Different star, real name Tauheed Epps, in July (15) accusing him of calling her a T.H.O.T., an acronym for "that hoe over there", in a video taken backstage at one of his shows last year (14).
The footage went viral, and Chisholm claimed she lost her job and had been subjected to abuse and harassment. She initially sought $5 million (£3.1 million) in damages, but filed new papers last month (Nov15) asking for $10 million for slander, libel and defamation.
Her lawsuit has now been dismissed by a federal judge in North Carolina, who ruled the term 2 Chainz allegedly used in the video does not constitute "extreme or outrageous conduct", according to TMZ.com.

A Woman Suing 2 Chainz Over A Backstage Encounter At A Show Last Year (14) Has Accused The Rapper Of Putting Out A Hit On Her Life.
Christine Chisolm filed suit against the I'm Different star in July (15) in relation to an incident at one of his concerts in 2014, when he allegedly referred to her as a "T.H.O.T.", an acronym for the derogatory term 'that hoe over there'.
