Bruh Bruh has been blessed with rising success as a rapper in the San Francisco Bay Area, and has seen his popularity grow across America. What started out as a hobby when he was just 12 years old turned into a full-time career and profession for him. Today, Bruh Bruh boasts of having released an EP and several singles, while also releasing a new EP entitled FAREWELL 2 THE BOTTOM in April or May of this year. As a way to give back to the community he grew up him, he recently gave out $10K at a local Walmart.
This giveaway was a heartwarming look into the power of generosity and the Christmas spirit. Done on Christmas Eve, Bruh Bruh was able to spread some last-minute good cheer to many who most certainly had a really rough 2020.
The giveaway involved this Oakland rapper walking up and down the aisles of his local Walmart and giving out $100 bills to anyone he would come across, including Walmart employees. He also went up to the cash registers and paid for peoples’ purchases.
After leaving Walmart, Bruh Bruh went to buy a few dozen hamburgers from McDonald’s and gave them out to every homeless person he could find. He also had a trunk full of new toys he picked up at Walmart that he was also giving out to passersby with kids.
Once the video got on YouTube, it quickly amassed tens of thousands of views. The response was overwhelmingly positive, with many remarking about how rappers are helping out ordinary folk far more than the government is these days. It seemed that the $10K giveaway was a major success. However, there were a few detractors.
The main critique was that Bruh Bruh didn’t actually give away $10,000. Some people claimed that he had a small wad of cash in his hand at the start of his giveaway video. In a response video, Bruh Bruh showed just how small a stack of $100 bills is to make up $10K. He also showed it along with nine more stacks of $10K, all of which he was able to hold in one hand.
That quick response was enough to silence the detractors. In his response video, he also wanted to make sure he shared a message about how the pandemic has been causing a tremendous amount of financial suffering for many, which is the main reason he did the giveaway in the first place. As someone who has the means to give back, Bruh Bruh believes it is his duty to do so. Also, he firmly believes that whatever you give, you will get back.
2021 is shaping up to be his breakout year. His first six-track EP, entitled End of December, was released on January 1st, 2021. He’s also sitting on 100 unreleased tracks, some of which will be released in 2021.
