As we previously reported, The Game saw a news story about Six-year-old Tiana Ricks being gunned down in her own front yard and decided he wanted to help the family pay for funeral expenses.

Well, we guess Snoop Lion was touched by the story as well because according to TMZ, he too is now chipping in to help out the family.

Says Snoop,

“Little 6-year-old girls are not supposed to die from a gunshot. But it keeps happening … Too many tears are being shed, too many young lives are being cut short. We need to come together to change this. Tiana loved to play the piano — she had a whole life ahead of her which she should have been filled with love and music.”

We are once again happy to see artists helping out and being philanthropic. It’s refreshing to see that some people in Hip Hop have no problem showing that they care about doing the right thing. Good job Snoop.
