Kevin Hart may have recruited the likes of Nicki Minaj, T.I. and The Rock for his Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge, but one musician in particular isn’t impressed by the comedian’s call to action.
Master P recently spoke with TMZ about the challenge, and shared his belief that no one, regardless of their fame and wealth, should be forced into making a monetary donation.
The No Limit founder added that it’s more important to give “from your heart.”
“I’m blessed that Kevin Hart made a donation. But I feel like he don’t have to do that because it’s not necessary,” Master P said. “A lot of people gon’ do what they wanna do. It’s they money. We made a [substantial] donation. It really don’t matter what it is. As long as you give it from your heart.”
P later pointed out the coincidence that the flooding in Houston, which he referred to as his second home, is taking place on the 12th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
“It’s crazy how it’s the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina,” he said. “And now Hurricane Harvey has definitely devastated Houston, Texas and all the people in the surrounding areas. Cause a lot of people right now is suffering. They’re not gonna be able to get back in their homes. We know how it is from New Orleans.”
On Sunday (August 27), Kevin Hart uploaded a video to Instagram asking his celebrity friends to join him in donating $25,000 to The Red Cross.
“I think we’re participating in a lot of challenges on the internet,” Hart said. “Some meaningful. Some meaningless, but we’ve all done ’em … At this point, I’m going to start a real challenge. I’m challenging a lot of my celebrity friends to follow my lead in donating $25,000 to Hurricane Harvey. To The Red Cross.”
