Rapper The Game continues to donate to the Black community by giving fans another call to action. The artist is urging fans to donate to Isaiah Cooper’s GoFundMe campaign. The 16-year-old from Game’s native Compton, California became the youngest African-American to fly across the continental United States on July 18. Now, he wants to set a Guinness World Record as the youngest Black person to fly around the globe.

The Game shared the teen’s story on Instagram earlier this week, saying ” I DONATED the 1st $1,000 & I’m up early & in a good supportive mood this morning.”

“If 49,000 people donated $1 we’d reach his goal in 1 hour,” the MC wrote in part. “This trip will have costs of things he will need to complete it, fuel, food equipment etc….. so PLEASE CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO & DONATE ANYTHING you can to help him accomplish his dream.”

If 49,000 people donated $1 we'd reach his goal in 1 hour…. I DONATED the 1st $1,000 & I'm up early & in a good supportive mood this morning & I hope you are too… 2 weeks ago we raised 50k for Officer Norman in ONE DAY !!! Last week we raised 5k in 2 hours for to young brothers MOTHERS funeral…. TOGETHER WE MAKE SHIT HAPPEN over here….. So I will ask ALL MY FANS or just any person with a heart to pay it forward TODAY & DONATE any amount from as small as $1 to @aerosquad.zae #IsaiahCooper the youngest AFRICAN AMERICAN pilot to ever fly across AMERICA. He made the trip in 2 weeks & now has his mind set on being the youngest AFRICAN AMERICAN pilot to fly around the world when he's 18 years old, the required age to be able to make the trip alone. This trip will have costs of things he will need to complete it, fuel, food equipment etc….. so PLEASE CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO & DONATE ANYTHING you can to help him accomplish his dream…. As usual, I will start with a donation of $1,000 in hopes that by the end of the day we have ALL helped him reach his goal of $45,000…… It takes us ALL to support one another…… IF YOU CARE & WANT TO BE APART OF THE SOLUTION, SHOW IT….

“It takes us ALL to support one another…… IF YOU CARE & WANT TO BE APART OF THE SOLUTION, SHOW IT…. CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO NOW,” he concluded.

The campaign has raised nearly $4,800 since it began June 15, with the majority of donations coming July 26 when The Game posted it on social media.

On Cooper’s campaign page, he explains his interest in aviation and how he returned to the hobby.

“I began attending an aviation youth program in Compton at Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum when I was 5 years old,” he wrote. “But as I got older, I began hanging with the wrong crowd, doing seriously self-destructive things. Realizing that this was not how I wanted to live my life, I returned to TAM. My main goal is to become a productive young man with a future in aviation, and not a statistic.”

“This epic journey gave me the experience necessary to achieve my ultimate goal to be the youngest person to fly solo around the world at age 18,” he added.
