Lil Baby To Join Haiti Native Jackboy To Build A Hospital Following Earthquake Devastation

This famous Haiti native is working to give back to his country after a devastating loss. Rapper Jackboy, born Pierre Delince, continues to give back to his home of Haiti following a deadly earthquake that hit the country last month. Despite the fact that the emcee moved to the U.S. at the age of six, he’s been known for using his success to reach back and help his birth country. On Aug. 14 approximately 2,200 people were killed during the 7.2 magnitude earthquake and over 12,000 people were injured, the U.S. Embassy revealed. While aid is slowly but surely reaching those who need it, there are still several parts of the country that aren’t able to get the assistance that they need due to their remote nature. With this in mind, Jackboy wants to help as many people as possible get the help that they need.
