Travis hashtagged the post with Drake’s song title “God’s Plan.” After dropping a heartfelt music video to the single, Drake challenged his fans and friends to do good deeds following his philanthropic video for the song. This was indeed Travis’s way of participating.
He also hashtagged #BigShots in his post, which referenced the song he contributed to the Black Panther soundtrack. Kendrick Lamar, who curated the soundtrack, thanked Travis, as well as all of his contributors on Twitter last week.
“Respect to all the artist/producers that allowed me to execute a sound for the soundtrack,” he wrote. “The concept of producing and composing a project other than my own has always been ideal. I appreciate the experience love ones. Continue to be great.”
Earlier this week, Top Dawg Entertainment’s Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith took close to 1,000 kids to see Black Panther for free. For many, this film represented much more than just a superhero movie, but also a showcase of representation and culture. It is amazing to see rappers and gatekeepers of Hip-Hop doing good deeds and broadening the horizons of the children who most likely support them. Hopefully, Drake’s good deed challenge and Travis’s actions inspire others to go out of their way to make someone smile as well!
