Jell Roll just finished giving it his all on his Backroad Baptism Tour, and as it turns out, he’s still got more to give.
The rapper-turned-country artist just recently posted onto his social media accounts about how grateful he was during his touring experience, and how much all of his fans mean to him. Jelly also announced that over his 80 days of touring, he visited a plethora of jails and homeless shelters, and managed to raise $590K for at-risk youth.
The “Save Me” singer will never shy away from where he came from, and is showing that he’ll always be willing to help those who are in similar places that he used to find himself in.
And in a more recent post from Jelly Roll, he delivered some more information on what he is advertising as “the biggest toy drive in Nashville history.”
In the video, Jelly kicked off the Tennessee toy drive by saying:
“What’s up Nashville and the surrounding areas? I am announcing the coolest thing I’ve ever announced. We are doing the biggest toy drive in Nashville history. We have partnered with Hasbro, we have partnered with Coca-Cola, we have partnered with Metro Nashville even.
This is the beginning of a lot more announcements to come. This is just day one of what will be the biggest partnered toy drive in Nashville history. I’m confident that we’re going to do it bigger than it’s ever been done.”
Jelly Roll clearly has a soft spot for the up and coming youth, and wants to help them in any way that he can. With his platform, and his loyal fanbase, I think they could easily reach the goal and title of “Nashville’s biggest toy drive.”
The post was captioned with:
“I’m excited to announce I’m partnering with Hasbro, Coca-Cola, iHeart, and Metro Nashville for the biggest toy drive in Nashville history.
Buy a toy from this Walmart store and donate it— the first 500 people to donate will get VIP access to see me perform live at the Walmart! The more donations we get the more songs I’ll do for y’all!”
I’m getting the vibe that Jelly Roll is basically taking on the role of “Rapping, Country Music Santa Clause,” and I think I can speak for everyone and say that I’m perfectly okay with that. The kickoff Walmart toy drive he spoke about in the video is underway, and I’m hopeful of two things:
– There was a vast turnout and the toy drive is off to a great start
– Jelly Roll kicked some ass in his mini Walmart concert
With the toy turnout being the more important of the two things of course…
