Go, Snoop Dogg/Lion!
The infamous O.G. has just announced that he'll be paying for some of the funeral costs for the 6-year-old girl who was fatally shot in California last weekend.
Originally The Game paid about $10,000 to the family of the 6-year-old girl, whose name was Tiana Ricks, but that amount didn't cover all of the costs!
So Snoop ponied up some of his cash, apparently about $2,000, to make sure the little girl got the burial and service that she deserves.
Here's what Snoop said in a statement:
"Little 6-year-old girls are not supposed to die from a gunshot. But it keeps happening … Too many tears are being shed, too many young lives are being cut short. We need to come together to change this."
We're sad and happy at the same time when we heard this news.
Sad for the little girl who hadn't even begun to experience the world before she was cruelly robbed of her life.
Happy that Snoop has donated his money, and set an example for all of us to follow.
Although police have still not found Tiana's killers - we're hoping they solve the case soon so some semblance of justice can be had.
Rest in peace, Tiana.
