Tory Lanez is using his powers for good.
The artist found a new niche during this pandemic by turning his Instagram Live into the entertaining Quarantine Radio show. Yet, he's not just using this platform to promote demon time and spark milk challenges. On Monday, Lanez's The Dream City Project partnered with Amazon Music and The Dream Center to launch the Tory Lanez Dream City Fund.
This initiative is in direct response to the success of his Quarantine Radio show. The Tory Lanez Dream City Fund will provide meals and diapers to people impacted by COVID-19 and its first donation will cover the cost of 100,000 diapers.
"It's very important for any artist to give back because at some point you were regular, too," Lanez told CNN when announcing the campaign. "At some point, you were a regular person just like everyone else," Lanez said. "I always tell artists people feel exactly how you (felt) when you were in that place."
Atop of that, Lanez dropped a limited edition Chinatown x Quarantine Radio collaboration with 100 percent of the proceeds from masks sold will be donated to the new fund. You can purchase it here.
Lanez is motivated by his own life experiences. The artist revealed to CNN that his mother died when he was 11-year-old from a rare illness. Now as a father of a 3-year-old son who suffers from respiratory issues, Lanez is aware of how hard medical situations like the coronavirus can be on the less fortunate.
"In a world where we all have homes to go to, nobody's taking about what a struggle it is for someone who's homeless right now," Lanez said. "What a struggle it is for a woman with a child with no home right now. What a struggle it is for a woman with a child with respiratory issues. No one is thinking about that."
Tory Lanez recently held a livestream performance on YouTube called the Social Distancing Tour.
