The Canadian rapper, 31, wasn't done.

Later, he surprised the residents of Lotus Village and gave the Overtown homeless shelter another check for $50,000, according to Allie Schwartz Grant, a spokeswoman for the nonprofit.

Drake posed with a giant check, which Lotus Women's Shelter shared on Instagram on Wednesday.

When asked by ABC News if she had a message for Drake, she said, "Thank you". I'm just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world.

More good deeds included buying a van and ice cream for Overtown Youth Center, where it was clearly very much appreciated. They were even more surprised when he offered to pay for everyone in the store.

Many who were in the store took to Instagram to share their experience with the rapper.

It's the latest good gesture from Drake, who is believed to be filming the charitable spree for upcoming music video God's Plan. "So that's really important or good for us, and all the customers getting insane".

According to James, Drake had told her he wanted to do something different with the music video he was shooting on campus and to give back, saying: "So I'm going to give you $50,000 to go toward your tuition".

"I hope you all have a great year, I hope you all go on to do incredible things.", he told them. "And the best news of the day is that the bell's about to ring, so school's over anyway". "God's Plan" was released alongside "Diplomatic Immunity" on January 24.

Due to her background, James received a call over the weekend from University of Miami's Assistant Vice President of University Advancement Darlene Rebello-Rao about being featured in a video for a scholarship donor luncheon.
