Apparently Ludacris has a heart of gold! The rapper responsible for hits such as “Get Back” and “Rollout” reportedly has a habit of visiting supermarkets around the country and picking up the tab for unexpected shoppers who look like they might need a hand.

Most recently, a woman named Therra Gwyn Jaramillo reportedly benefited from Luda’s generosity when she was shopping at a Whole Foods late last month with a $250 gift card.

Per a post Therra shared on Facebook on July 30, the man in front of her in line offered to buy her groceries once he realized she couldn’t afford all of her items. The man, who only identified himself as “Chris”, purchased all of Therra’s groceries — $375 worth — which left her in tears, and then went on his way.

It wasn’t until after the mystery man let the store that the cashier told Therra the kind-hearted stranger was none other than Ludacris, 40. “This guy is awesome run amok,” she wrote on Facebook. “You know why? He was just doing something kind for a disheveled, harried stranger.”

But according to dozens of social media users, the incident last month was hardly the first time the Furious 7 actor has foot the grocery bill for someone in need. In fact, The New York Times reports the Grammy winner frequently goes to the supermarket on his own, and has been known to pay it forward by purchasing food for strangers across the country.

Just take a look at some of the Twitter evidence below:

Ludacris’s longtime manager, Chaka Zulu, told The NYT that purchasing groceries for others isn’t out of the ordinary for his client. “Luda does these things all the time,” he explained. “But he doesn’t want to do interviews to highlight it. It’s just his heart.”

Though he may not want to draw attention to his good deeds, Ludacris’ actions have earned him plenty of praise on social media in recent days. In fact, Taraji P. Henson tweeted about how Ludacris helped Therra, writing, “I adore your heart.”
