Chance the Rapper: 10 hip-hop stars who spit hot charity

(CNN)Money, meet mouth.

Chance the Rapper met with Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner last week to discuss money for Chicago Public Schools, and the half-hour meeting left the three-time Grammy winner feeling a little empty.
"He gave me a lot of vague answers," Chance complained to reporters.
    But rather than limit his activism to groaning, the 23-year-old public school product instead announced he was giving $1 million to Chicago schools and his charity, SocialWorks, would give $10,000 for every additional $100,000 raised.
    Of course, the rapper is no stranger to philanthropy. He's done his part to combat gun violence in his hometown and raised money to put coats on kids' backs and to bring technology upgrades to schools, among other endeavors.
    Too often, it seems, rappers make headlines for their bad behavior. So let's have a look at 10 hip-hop stars who have used their influence to make the world a little nicer.

    Oh, where to begin with Sean Combs? There's the time he pulled the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem from insolvency with a $60,000 donation. Or perhaps the time he raised $2 million for children's charities running the New York Marathon. How about when he gave his alma mater, Howard University, $1 million for business scholarship and internships?
    He also sits on the board of the Hip-Hop Action Summit, and has been quick to "Blow a Check" on a variety of charities, including the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Network for Teaching entrepreneurship and the i.am Scholarship fund. After a superstorm slammed the northeast United States in 2013, Combs co-hosted the Superstars for Sandy Relief party, which raised $524,742.
