Hip hop star Master P stepped forward with a unique show of generosity as he offered an undisclosed amount of money to anyone who can help catch the murderer of a 22-year-old man who was killed on Christmas Day two years ago.
The Louisville, Kentucky-based WHAS 11 broke the news that Master P was stepping in and willing to give “as much as necessary” to help bring justice to the family of Charles Fambrough.
Master P, whose real name is Percy Miller, is teaming up with Louisville woman Megan Brown to help find the person who killed her fiancé back in 2012.
“Somebody come forward [or] whoever got anything to do with this or you know somebody—somebody sitting around bragging at home thinking it’s a joke, it’s not a joke,” Miller said. “You took somebody from somebody’s loved one who really misses that person. He should be here for his family.”
Back in 2012, tragedy struck when Fambrough, a young father, was walking home from his own mother’s house.
The young man was gunned down before he made it back home.
It’s a title that Miller and Brown are hoping to avoid.
The Fambrough family wasn’t the only family that Master P reached out to over the holidays.
This year Miller focused on reaching out to children who had lost loved ones in an attempt to bring a little joy to the holiday season for them.
In addition to announcing the reward for catching Fambrough’s killer, he also gave bikes to two dozen children who had lost loved ones to violence.
Even before the holiday season, the hip hop star was doing whatever he could to help families in Louisville cope with tragedy.
He reportedly paid the funeral expenses for a 12-year-old boy who was killed by a homeless man in Cherokee Park.
To this day the New Orleans-native explains that Louisville is his “second home” and he is now working to help deal with many of the issues the community faces such as “chronic incarceration, poverty and violence in the African-American community.”
