2 Chainz Buys Disabled Veteran New Furniture, Pays Her Rent For The Year

Palmetto, GA (CBS Atlanta) - It's the season of giving and rapper 2 Chainz showed us just that this past weekend. 2 Chainz visited single mother and disabled veteran Deidre Plater of Palmetto, Georgia with a surprise of a lifetime.

According to CNN, Plater hasn't found a job in the past year and has been struggling to support her family and pay bills. The rapper, who is from College Park, Georgia, learned of her situation and visited her Saturday.

He brought Plater and her family new furniture for the apartment and offered to pay her rent for the entire year.

Plater said, "Last week was my son's birthday and his mentor sister brought us something to eat for Thanksgiving while dropping off money for some groceries and she noticed that we didn't have any furniture in the house. I guess that sparked my son's mentor Mark Barnes to do something special for us and when he got the call from 2 Chainz about helping a family it all fell into place."

2 Chainz went on Instagram to talk about his past of growing up not having a lot, including going to bed hungry and how this is one of the many chances to give back.

He worked with the charitable organization T.R.U. Foundation to help pay for her rent and furniture.
