"I was gonna shoot a video for the remix to Roses that me and Future just did, we were literally gonna shoot it in the next 2 days. I just got off the phone with La Reid, I asked him to bump the budget from 60k to 100k, then I asked him to give me the video budget and don't ask what I'm gonna do with it. He agreed. That's legendary shit. We should never be afraid to do the right thing," he explained. "I'm donating 125k across bail funds and black-owned businesses affected right now. #BlackLivesMatter Periodt."
The announcement was made a few days before Black Out Tuesday. He captioned the photo, "I don't got no speeches. I ain't a speech n***a. People are hurt and I feel them, period," he wrote along with tagging Biggs Burke and LA Reid. "#BlackLivesMatter we need better leadership."
