On Thursday, the 42-year-old rapper's rep told CNN that he decided to set up a 529 college saving fund for George Floyd's 6-year-old daughter Gianna to cover her tuition.

Additionally, the rapper also donated $2 million to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, to help with costs such as legal fees. Kanye also donated to other black-owned businesses in his native city of Chicago, among others.

Daddy changed the world!

According to reports, Breonna Taylor died in her Louisville home after police reportedly broke in to execute a "no-knock warrant." In February, Ahmaud Arbery got shot and killed by the police while out on a jog in Georgia when they mistook him for a burglary suspect.

Kanye's donation came after several days of protests against the use of excessive and life-threatening force by police officers like Derek Chauvin. He since lost his job and got charged with murder and manslaughter after George Floyd's death.

Derek knelt on George's neck for almost nine minutes, and now that George's death got ruled a homicide, he faces a charge of second-degree manslaughter and another charge of second-degree murder. The charges got bumped up from the initial charge of third-degree murder following the autopsy results.

On Thursday, the other three police officers involved in the incident on May 25, also got fired and arrested for aiding and abetting George's tragic death.

The incident draws attention from around the world, and no one is more proud than George's daughter Gianna. She may be only 6 years old, but she understands the gravity of the situation.

Earlier this week, a video surfaced of Gianna on one of her dad's friends' shoulders, the NBA star Stephen Jackson, as she smiled and gave a poignant answer when someone asked her what her dad did.

Raising her arms, the 6-year-old reportedly said with pride, "Daddy changed the world!"

Hennepin County's medical examiner just released their detailed autopsy report, which in its 20 plus pages revealed that the cause of George Floyd's death was because of "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression."

The report also revealed that George tested positive for the novel coronavirus on April 3, and he tested positive for the virus again when the results of a nasal swab came back.
