American rapper Future is drawing some inspiration from one of his hits to fight the deadly novel Coronavirus.

The rapper behind the 2017 hit ‘Mask Off,’ Future is partnering with a sewing organization to provide face masks to hospital workers and patients in a campaign appropriately titled ‘Mask On.’

The FreeWishes Foundation, founded by Future, his sister and his mother, announced the campaign last week, calling the need for medical equipment during the coronavirus pandemic “critical.”

“As most people adapt to the new normal of staying quarantined to protect themselves from the coronavirus, healthcare professionals do not have this privilege,” the foundation said in a news release. “In addition, they do not even have enough supplies to protect themselves from contracting the coronavirus.”

People around the world are sewing masks due to the shortage brought on by the spread of COVID-19.

Atlanta Sewing Style, a sewing organization based in Future’s hometown, has organized a team of 500 to make and deliver the masks, the release said. The release did not say how many masks they would be producing.

“It is important to my brother, Future and I that we are of service to our community, especially during this pandemic and throughout the year,” said Tia-Wilburn Anderson, Future’s sister and co-founder of the foundation.

Fear over the spread of the novel coronavirus has led to mask shortages across the nation and world, as many people snatched them up in a panic. The boom led to higher prices and made them more difficult to obtain for health care workers, who need the masks more than the average citizen.

Future and his family aren’t the only ones stepping up. Celebrities like Rihanna have donated millions of dollars to help fight the global pandemic.
