Eminem and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey have teamed up to donate $1 million to help people of Detroit. The donations were announced two days ago, during Lil Wayne’s Young Money Radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio station.
Eminem announced he would be donating $250,000 to the city of Detroit through his Marshall Mathers Foundation. “I’ve got a few areas I want to take care of in Detroit,” says Eminem during the interview.
Right after Eminem’s interview, Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey called in and announced he would provide an additional $750,000 to the Marshall Mathers Foundation to bring it to the total of $1 million.
“I heard Eminem doing $250k so I want to contribute even more to Detroit so Eminem can help as many people as possible.”
