Christian rapper Kanye West has reportedly set up a fund to cover the full cost of college for the daughter of George Floyd -- Gianna Floyd.

West's representative explained that he has set up a 529 education plan to fully cover college tuition for Gianna, who is six years old.

According to CNN, Ye made a donation totaling $2 million to support the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.

Floyd was killed by former police officer Derek Chauvin, who pinned Floyd to the ground by his neck for more than 8 minutes. Chauvin was arrested last week and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter before prosecutors elevated the charges and charged him with a more serious count of second-degree murder.

Three more officers have also been charged with aiding and abetting the murder. Floyd's death has sparked protests across the country and the globe in protest of police brutality and racial injustice towards the Black community.
