Master P and Mark Wahlberg to Give Out Thanksgiving Meals in LA

No Limit Records founder Master P has teamed up with former Funky Bunch rapper Mark Wahlberg to hand out Thanksgiving meals in Los Angeles.

The unlikely pairing of the former gangster rapper and Entourage producer are working in conjunction with charities Reachback LA and OneMillionGifts.org to serve meals in an area of Los Angeles that is known for crime and gang violence.

“This is our third year in this program,” Master P said. “It’s great for the community. We are able to give the homeless a hot Thanksgiving meal and feed families in need and that are struggling through these tough economic times.”

Reachback LA’s founder, Chico Brown, who grew up in the area, was excited about the possibility of giving back.

“Growing up in this community has been tough but I’ve been able to overcome obstacles,” Brown said. “It’s wonderful to be able to give back and see the smiles on so many kids’ faces just happy to be able to have a Thanksgiving dinner.”

Several other rappers have offered similar service to the community this Turkey Day, including Jay Rock who is handing out turkeys in L.A., Young Jeezy, who’s hosting a dinner for high school students in Atlanta, and KRS-One, who is working in the Bowery Mission in NYC, where he lived when he was homeless.

“Together we can change the world,” Mark Wahlberg said in a statement. “Today we will experience what Thanksgiving is really all about, being thankful for what we have and sharing it with others in need.”
