Drake has become the latest public figure to make a sizable donation to aid arrested protestors across America. The $100,000 USD donation to the National Bail Out fund came as protests against systemic racism and police brutality continued across the country and spread across the world.

Drake’s donation came after he was encouraged to do so by Mustafa the Poet, who tagged his “Toronto Kings” Drake and The Weeknd in an Instagram Story asking them to match his $400 USD donation and add three zeros.
