Big Boi Blesses A 5-Year-Old Paralyzed Child With A Gift

Antwan Big Boi” Patton, one-half of legendary rap duo Outkast, has done a good deed that is enough to warm anyone’s heart.

Back in April, five-year-old Abriya Ellison was shot by an unknown shooter while playing in her bouncy castle. Although Ellison survived the tragic incident, it left her paralyzed from the waist down. Once hearing of the Georgia native’s story, Big Boi began to reach out to Ellison and her family.

Abriya was gifted with a bulldog puppy that will be trained to be her service dog, courtesy of Big Boi’s Pitfall Kennels.

WSB Atlanta asked what she’d name her new puppy enthusiastically shouting, “King!”

The Atlanta news outlet also mentions Big Boi and his brother James will cover the animal’s vet care. Meanwhile, Patton will pay Ellison’s GoFundMe needs while also giving her a handicapped-accessible bathroom.

Despite what happened to her, the rapper took note of Abriya’s positive spirit and energy in an on-camera interview with WSB Atlanta.“She’s been through a lot and to see how strong she is now, that was just like ‘Oh my goodness.’ She’s definitely inspiring and it just touched our heart, so we’re just trying to do what we can do to help.”
