Last holiday season, 2 Chainz generated nearly $2 million in profit from his line of "Dabbin Santa" Christmas sweaters. A large portion of the proceeds was then donated to a variety of charities, which included homeless veteransdisabled children and arts education programs in his native Georgia.

This year, the rapper formerly known as Tity Boi has unveiled a brand new line of Christmas sweaters, which includes a limited edition, one-of-one sweater that is currently available for purchase for a cool $90,000.

The sweater, hand-crafted by Avianne & Co. Jewelers, includes 50 carats of diamonds and 250 grams of gold, with a portion of proceeds going to 2 Chainz' own T.R.U. Foundation. According to their Facebook page, the T.R.U. Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization established in 2012, is "dedicated to promoting balanced, respectful and enriched relationships and aim to create life changing moments and help build a positive outcome for our young generation."

While 2016 has been an absolute shit show of a calendar year, there isn't a week that has gone by without a notable charitable effort from the hip-hop community. Rhymefest and Donda's House are using music to help Chicago's youth, Fetty Wap has been visiting young fans in the hospital, and countless rappers chipped in to help the city of Flint, Michigan at the height of their water crisis. 

Hip-hop has the power and the platform to influence and affect change. Kudos to 2 Chainz for leading the pack.
