Nas Raises Money To Help A Homeless Single Father & His 8 Children

Posted by: cnikky


Queensbridge rapper Nas, has a heart of gold.  After watching a touching news story about a single father with 8 children, who lost his home in a fire, Nas decided to step up and help raise money for the family.  Stanley Young lost his wife and mother of all of his children one year ago.  He has since, also lost his job as a construction worker.  His adorable 8 kids range in age from toddlers to 18 years old.  They have been temporarily housed in a hotel room at the Holiday Inn, but they have to be out of the hotel by August 13th.  Hopefully, Nas can make a difference.



Queens rapper, Nas, is helping to change the lives of a single father and his family.

After hearing about Stanley Young, an unemployed construction worker and sole parent, whose house was destroyed by a fire two weeks ago, Nas began a campaign to help raise the money for a new home.

Young’s family is presently confined in a hotel. While the Life is Good emcee continues to collect donations to add unto the 35K he’s already managed to accumulate, Nas urges his fans that “time is running out.”


The problem lies largely in the fact that Young’s family is a unit of eight people. Finding a place big enough for the entire clan makes circumstances much more difficult. Not to mention, their mother passed away about a year ago.
