The Grammy award-winning rapper joined a nonprofit organization called Love Beyond Walls last week to install 15 portable sinks filled with water and hand sanitizer in Atlanta.

“I wanted to continue doing the same stuff that I have been doing just in any city I’ve lived in and that’s just being close to the disenfranchised and the marginalized communities,” Lecrae told the Associated Press.
