(Gossip-Grind News) E-40 Donates $10,000 To Salvation Army:

Bay Area rap legend Earl “E-40” Stevens really caught the spirit of giving this holiday season. The Vallejo raised rap star donated $10,000 to the Salvation Army on Christmas Eve.

The Times-Herald reports:

E-40, a national rap pioneer some 25 years ago, said the holiday was “the perfect moment” to help the cause.

“My mother and father divorced when I was 8 1/2. They did what they could do. When times got heavy, me and mom had to come over here” to the Salvation Army, E-40 said.

“I understand the struggle.”

Arriving as a back-seat passenger in a white Suburban, E-40 emerged to a handful of fans, dignitaries and media in an appearance kept quiet to avoid mayhem from his significant fan base.

Though he’s donated locally before, “I don’t talk about everything I do,” E-40 said, realizing the desperate local need was there this year.

“I knew I had to come out to my soil,” he said of his native Vallejo. “I’m trying to give back.”

Mayor Osby Davis praised E-40 for always claiming Vallejo as his home.

“He has a recognition, and an appreciation and a pride in our city,” Davis said.

Before posing with a giant promotional check, the 6-foot-2 rapper, producer and entrepreneur smiled for cameras as about a dozen kids received bikes compliments of the Salvation Army.
