Vince Staples’ campaign to raise $2 million to shut himself up forever didn’t succeed. But, the story has a happy ending as backers of his GoFundMe will be refunded and some of his own money is going to a good cause.
“Seeing as we clearly won’t reach our goal of 2 million dollars, I am cancelling the gofundme and refunding all the little people with big voices,” Staples declared via Twitter on Wednesday night (March 14). “I expect to hear no further slander.”
Staples upped the ante by announcing he would match the $2,022 sum raised on GoFundMe in a donation to the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library, which is located in his hometown of Long Beach, California.
“I am also personally matching the donations made and donating the full amount to the Michelle Obama library of Norf Long Beach… in honor of you citch ass niggas,” he continued. “I love you all, good day. #gtfomd.”
