Kid Cudi Buys $10K Worth of Popeyes Chicken to Feed Homeless

During the second weekend of the Coachella Music Festival, rapper Kid Cudi reportedly spent $10,000 on a huge order from Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in an effort to feed homeless locals.

After joining friend and Kids See Ghosts collaborator, Kanye West, for his Sunday Service performance, Cudi placed a Postmates order from Popeyes for thousands of dollars worth of chicken, biscuits, mashed potatoes and fries, distributing meals to the homeless community in the area through the Coachella Valley Homeless Commission, TMZ reports.

“The delivery service dropped off a carload of food to the shelter, which serves hundreds of homeless people in Indio,” the gossip publication wrote, “and they all got a nice hot meal this weekend thanks to Cudi’s generosity.”
