This generous gesture is equally important and incredible.

At this point in the election year, YG is no stranger to expressing his strong political views through his music.

After his anti-Trump anthem “FDT (F**k Donald Trump)" saw commercial success and elevated his career to a new level earlier this year, the young rapper is now incorporating the message behind his music into his mission.

Much to the delight of his fans, YG has announced a major new tour, aptly titled the FDT Tour. The best part? The rapper will donate a portion of the proceeds from the tour to families who have been affected by police brutality.

In addition, the 52-city tour will also offer opportunities for fans who are registered voters to receive a discount on merch, as well as the opportunity to vote at the merchandise booth.

Aside from the financial perks of supporting YG on his tour, several cities will also play host to a pre-show panel discussion with a focus on the 2016 presidential election. 

The perks for the meet-and-greet options for the tour are also pretty unique, with the rapper offering rides in his Maybach and a home-cooked meal by his mother.

Not too shabby for a major headlining tour. We're beyond here for the fact that he's taking his activism to the streets while also directly helping those who will be touched by his generosity immensely and setting a positive example for those in the rap community working tirelessly to make a change.
