Nicki Minaj was delivering Christmas cheer in Queens the day before Thanksgiving.
The rapper showed up in southern Jamaica on Wednesday night to deliver more than 500 Thanksgiving turkeys to the locals.
Minaj was born in Trinidad and Tobago, but moved to Queens when she was 5 years old.
The 113th New York police precinct posted photos of the rapper's generous action on Twitter and said: "Who says rappers do not return to the neighborhood they come from?" Minaj retweeted the post,
The photos showed the people who lined the street to see the rapper, and maybe a turkey.
It is not Minaj's first act of generosity. Last year he offered to pay more than $ 25,000 of his fan's tuition fees if they were paid directly at school.
