YG is quickly becoming one of the biggest names to ascend from the new west but the ratchet MC has not lost sight of how important it is to give back.

The Def Jam rapper, held an essay contest for fans from Los Angeles County Group Homes, giving them a chance to win a holiday shopping spree with the man himself. And for those that think it was just a publicity stunt, think again. YG read through hundreds of entries to find the winners himself.

"My Christmas shopping experience should be a reminder to all to give back. The children were able to be carefree for a day and not have to face his or her reality," YG said of the experience.

With all the attention the West Coast has received this year, YG looks to utilize that spotlight to help encourage other rappers and public figures to give back to the community.
