Ghostface Killah hands out cash to Denver’s homeless, doesn’t “make it rain”

Ghostface Killah hands out money to Denver’s homeless, unlike Atlanta artists Ralo, who “made it rain” on the homeless earlier this week.

Dennis Coles, a prominent rapper who performs under the moniker Ghostface Killah, visited Denver Saturday and paid the homeless population a visit.

The Wu Tang artist stopped along a street in Denver to hand $20 to those sleeping on the street, according to All Hip Hop.

Earlier in the week, Coles’ contemporary Ralo came under some scrutiny for ‘making it rain’ $30,000 on a gathering of homeless people in Atlanta, All Hip Hop reported.

He coined the move #RALOHOMELESSCHALLENGE, and invited others to do the same, though his approach seemed to attract as much ire as appreciation.

The video of Coles’ generosity has earned 969 likes and more than 700 shares on Facebook.
