Rick Ross shut down a Mississippi Walmart to hold a toy drive giveaway in his own hometown of Clarksdale. Parents drove from miles around to buy toys for their children.
"We've gotta lot of families out here," said Ross in a video uploaded to his @richforever Instagram account.. "We just came out here, shut the Walmart down. We letting them do they thang. God is great."
"The biggest toy drive, man. Memphis, Clarksdale, the whole area. We're doing it big for these kids."
He captioned the video:
"For the past several years I've been blessed and able to give bach to the communities. I would like to thank everyone that helped with putting together the Xmas givebach in Dade, Broward, Atlanta, Memphis & Mississippi."

August Alsina is taking advantage of the buzz surrounding his past affair with Jada Pinkett Smith by dropping a new track, appropriately titled "Entanglements."
The R&B crooner recruited rapper Rick Ross to add his personal views about entanglements with married women.
The lovestruck singer proves he still hasn't gotten over Jada - even though she and her husband, Will Smith, have gotten over him and moved on.
"The definition of entanglement / It's?when?you're tangled in?the sheets / Girl I know?that we don't call it a relationship / But you're still f—in' with me," Alsina sings.
Alsina even taunts Will on the track, singing, "I'm on my way, yeah / I'ma pull up when he dip / He's always think me and you f—in' / If he see me, he gon' trip."
Will and Jada recently cleared the air about Jada's fling on her popular web series "Red Table Talk."
Will Smith denied giving Alsina permission to pursue his wife, and Jada claimed the affair happened during a "break" in her marriage.
"What August was actually trying to communicate — because I could actually see how he would perceive it as permission because we were separated amicably — I think he also wanted to make it clear that he's not a homewrecker, which he's not," Jada said.

Rick Ross has filed for joint custody of the children he shares with ex-girlfriend Briana Camille.
Brianna slapped the rapper with a paternity lawsuit after he stopped paying her child support for their kids, Berkeley and Billion.
Ross, whose real name is William Roberts II, filed a countersuit citing Briana's "erratic behavior", accusing her of preventing him from seeing the children, and also keeping a company car that Ross loaned her.
Ross seeks joint custody of the children -- a move that will reduce his child support by half.
The rapper was criticized for mocking Briana after a DNA test confirmed he is the father of Berkeley and Billion.
"I can't believe Fat Girl took the blood test, damn, they said she damn near fell running away from them people when they came to make her take the blood test," he said in a video clip posted on May 18.
Ross called Briana his "surrogate" in the caption, writing "Eyez dat baby papi!! My surrogate always delivers!!! Big Thank you #Fatgirl."
Briana is reportedly pregnant with Rick's 5th child. He has two other children, daughter Toie Roberts and son, William Roberts III, from previous relationships.
Lira Galore filed a restraining order against her baby daddy, Quality Control Record's CEO Pierre "Pee" Thomas. In the document, obtained by TMZ, Galore, who was born Tylira Mercer, said Thomas is threatening and unpredictable, even when he's in a courtroom.
Mercer wants a judge to order Thomas to stay away from her and their infant daughter.
Mercer filed docs seeking a temporary protective order against Thomas for threatening her last week during a court hearing in their custody battle for 9-month-old, Khaleesi Mercer.

Mercer is best known for her brief engagement to rapper Rick Ross (pictured).
Last month Mercer accused Thomas of violent abuse, claiming he beat her during her first 8 months of pregnancy with his child. She's seeking at least $15 million for her injuries.
Mercer says in new docs that because of the past alleged violence, she's terrified of Thomas. She claims Thomas kept trying to speak to her during a hearing, including approaching her in an "intimidating nature" and attempted to get her phone number.
She claims while they were sitting across from each other in a conference room, he kept glaring at her and made her extremely uncomfortable. She says he got caught taking pictures of her on his cell phone.
Mercer says when she and her lawyer tried to leave the room, Thomas blocked the doorway and harassed her. She says they had to call a deputy to escort her safely out of the building.
Mercer claims the ordeal was traumatic for her and says even her lawyer "for the first time in her legal career, felt unsafe in the courtroom."
She's asking for a court order to keep Thomas 100 yards away and to not have any contact with her or their child.
Thomas denies he's been abusive and has called Mercer's claims a "15 million dollar shake down."
