Okay, so Tyga may not be donning the candy cane suit and white beard. And he’s about 50 pounds lighter than ol’ Saint Nick, (and who knows if he’s the right complexion for the part) but the spirit, the giving spirit he exhibited at the Children’s Center for Cancer & Blood Diseases of L.A. Children’s Hospital this past weekend was shown throughout.

The Young Money rapper TYGA (acronym for Thank God Always) took a break from fiancee and Kim Kardashian’s bestie Blac Chyna to visit his No. 1 fan Isael Gomez, a 16 year old in need of a kidney transplant. Not only did the “Still Got it” lyricist surprise Isael with his presence and rallying support to find a donor. But PRESENTS, yes kiddies, Christmas presents.

And what did Santa Tyga bring Isael and the other fifty-nine kiddos?

Why, the joy of music of course. He gifted them with Flips Audio headphone X speakers, Music Bullet Speakers along with clothing from his company Last Kings.

It’s important to support nonprofit organizations like Children’s Hospital Los Angeles–they take care incredible care of our community, so I am honored to help make a difference for these children who are from the city I grew up in and to help encourage them and to bring a smile to their faces. – Tyga

By far the best gift.

….Meanwhile in Oklahoma City, OKC baller Russell Westbrook’s Why Not? Foundation hosted a Christmas party for foster children in his native city.

He teamed up with Citizens Caring for Children, a non-profit that provides clothes, shoes, books and other essentials for kids in state custody, to hand out gifts and brand new shoes.

More and more children are placed into foster care each year and to be in a position to bring the joy of Christmas to some of these kids is truly a blessing. I am in a unique position to be able to give back to a community that has been so supportive of me and help children in need -Russell Westbrook

I guess Tyga isn’t the only one playing Santa, at least Westbrook rocked the hat.
