50 Cent opened up his wallet to help the family of a New York teenager gunned down at bus stop.

50 rented a horse drawn carriage that carried 14-year old D’aja Robinson to her funeral on Friday. Robinson’s funeral drew 2,500 mourners that lined the streets in Jamaica, N.Y., the New York Daily News reports.

Robinson was killed after leaving a Sweet 16 party in Queens. The 14-year old had just boarded a bus with her friends last weekend when gunfire erupted and she was struck by a stray bullet. The tragic incident caught 50’s attention and he offered to help pay for some of the funeral expenses.

‘People always try and paint negative images about me,’ 50 wrote on Facebook. “I’m the most genuine down to earth person and I didn’t forget where I came from. I came through for baby girl by providing a horse and carriage for her. She was pretty, innocent and didn’t deserve to die like that R.I.P D’Asia  Robinson.’
