Tyre Nichols, a 29-year-old Black man, died a few days after he was brutally beaten by Memphis police officers.
After leading a peaceful protest in Memphis last week, NLE Choppa is launching a foundation in the wake of the police killing of Tye Nichols.
The rapper announced the event in a Twitter video, saying, “Today, I felt it on my heart to turn a negative situation into a positive. I actually went to sleep dwelling on how I could wake up today and do that.”
Five police officers were fired and charged with second-degree murder for their roles in the death of Tyre Nichols.
