Rapper Jackboy plans to construct a hospital in Haiti after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake
Haiti is on a long road to recovery from a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that occurred nearly three weeks ago and killed more than 1,900 people. Jackboy wants to support this recovery process by building a new hospital on the island.
The rapper recently shared insights into this goal on his official Instagram account. Apparently he took a trip to Haiti and witnessed firsthand the devastating effects of the earthquake, including the few and overcrowded hospitals that still stand.
“I just walked through a hospital in Haiti and all the patients who sleep outside,” Jackboy wrote on his Instagram story. “I personally gave each and every one of them an envelope full of money, but for fr I feel that this is not enough.”
Then he makes a suggestion asking who would like to “cut it in half” and “build a hospital” with him. He makes it clear that the cost of using US dollars will not be “that high”. According to data from Morningstar for Currency and Coinbase for Cryptocurrency, one American dollar is reportedly converted into roughly 97 Haitian gourde.
Along with the request, he shared a video of Haitians and the island that was captured from a moving vehicle.
Jackboy, whose real name is Pierre Delince, was actually born in Haiti and moved to Florida at the age of six. According to the Miami New Times, his family hopped around cities in Florida before settling in Pompano Beach.
Kodak Black’s label Sniper Gang had mixed reports on the rapper’s current status. The couple grew up as best friends in the same community and have publicly shown their love and support for one another. However, for the past few months, they’ve been on the line with social media snubs and call outs. Last weekend, Jackboy and Kodak exchanged a few words on Instagram Live. The interaction ended with Jackboy killing Kodak before continuing on about Kodak’s character and history.
In addition to the Haiti video and the application for funding for the hospital, Jackboy called on Future to help with the bill. Tagged the rap star in another Instagram story post, he said, “Use half that money out of it and let’s build this hospital suffering.” Jackboy was referring to a benefit concert for Haiti that Future will perform in Miami on September 3rd. It is currently unclear whether Future received Jackboy’s request.
