Rappers Drake and The Game are Paying for the Funerals of the Kids Who Died in the Tiffin Trailer Fire

Some of the biggest names in rap, Drake and The Game, are teaming up to help finance the funerals of six people who died tragically this week after a house fire ripped through a Tiffin mobile home, killing five young child and a man.

TMZ reports that The Game got the ball rolling after hearing about Ana Angel, the mother who lost her five children and boyfriend to the fire while she was working a shift at a local Burger King.

The rapper was on the phone with his buddy Drake when he read about the incident, and the two instantly agreed to each donate $10,000 to help cover funeral costs.

"I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time," The Game later posted on Instagram.

In addition to the $20K coming from the two artists, the producers of Game's TV series Marrying the Game contributed $2,500.
