Briefly.co.za reported on Rihanna's new bae spending his Thanksgiving delivering meals to families staying at a homeless shelter that he stayed at with his mom.

ASAP Rocky spent the American holiday of Thanksgiving delivering meals to people staying at a homeless shelter that he and his mom used to stay at. The rapper and his mother had been occupants of the shelter when they were struggling with homelessness and decided to spend their holiday by giving back.

ASAP Rocky ordered 120 meals from Amy Ruth's Restaurant, his favourite restaurant in Harlem, New York. The artist then delivered the meals to the homeless shelter and handed them out himself.

One tweep commented on the story:

@DarrianCrane: "ASAP Rocky delivered 120 meals to a NY shelter but it’s not making any noise? Shoutout to Rocky, all love."

ASAP Rocky did not announce the deed nor did he post it to any social media. The rapper was clearly using the holiday of gratitude to be grateful for what he has now and the journey that led him to success.
