Rapper Master P is covering the costs of a funeral for a young boy who was reportedly killed by a homeless man.

The Make 'Em Say Uhh! hitmaker, real name Percy Miller, has graciously offered to pay for 12-year-old Ray Etheridge's funeral expenses. The boy was allegedly murdered by 21-year-old Joseph Cambron in Louisville, Kentucky last week (02Oct14).

According to local news station Wlky, Etheridge was last seen on security footage with Cambron.

Later that day, the young boy's body was found by a runner in a local park and police arrested Cambron on suspicion of his murder.

Master P, who lost his own brother to violence over 20 years ago, also helped pay for the funeral of a mother of three who was shot and killed in Louisville last December (14).
