BJ the Chicago Kid Gives back in a major way for the Holidays+ His Collab with Kendrick Lamar

It should be the hope of every person to find a way to give back to their community. Singer/songwriter producer Bryan Sledge bka BJ the Chicago Kid is no different. Hailing from Chicago, IL BJ is known for his soulful and real life lyrics. His live performance is an experience I'd encourage any music lover to encounter. BJ's albums and mixtapes are highly praised by fans and peers alike.

This year the artist who now resides in LA wanted to give something more than incredible music to his hometown. Teaming up with his own charity organization The Chicago Kids Foundation and Universal Republic artist YP- BJ will be giving away turkeys to the Chicagoland area today, November 20th! Families in need of a turkey for the holidays can come by  Prayer Band Church  on 321 E. 69th St, Chicago, IL from
1 PM - 3 PM to get one for free!

This is an amazing gesture considering how many families are in need around the holidays. When asked about why he decided to do it, BJ responded:

"I recently signed to Motown Records but this foundation is strictly from my heart. This drive is my first attempt to give back to Chicago. In this instance, I don't want any lines to be crossed between me signing my deal and The Chicago Kids Foundation. I will not be releasing an album this year... so this drive has nothing to do with the promotion of my music in any kind of way."
I love it. Salute to BJ, YP, and his foundation for giving back! For more information on The Chicago Kids Foundation contact 773.669.6171.
