On April 22, A$AP Ferg teamed up with Harlem’s Melba restaurant to provide 300 meals for medical workers at Harlem Hospital Center, in which he helped hand out.
The New York City Health System took to Instagram to share a video of the rapper, Melba’s owner, and a few hospital workers standing in front of the hospital ready to serve their heroes. A$AP Ferg sent a sweet message and expressed how grateful the society is to have health care workers being strong enough for everyone during this time.
