He's won multiple Grammys, appeared in the television hit ATL, and just released his fourth solo project.

Big Boi's passions are music and the bulldogs he breeds at Pitf Fall Kennels.

OutKast rapper Big Boi is stepping up to help a little girl who was left paralyzed after she was shot while playing in a bounce house in April. The "Shutterbugg" rapper also gave Abriya a service puppy as well. As you can see in the video above, Abriya is fond of the little guy, which she named King.

She just finished three months of intense therapy, and loved the service dogs at the hospital.

Now, she has a dog to call her own; one that mom says will help her recovery. "She doesn't complain. She's always got a smile on her face", said her mother, Andreauna Douglas in an interview with WSB-TV.

Since then, she has undergone several surgeries and made some significant progress by participating in an intensive Children's Healthcare of Atlanta rehab program.

Athletics: Hellen Obiri wins 5000 metres with astonishing last lap
Despite possessing the superior finishing speed, Obiri made her first challenge down the back straight on the penultimate lap. Niyonsaba, who took silver behind her in Rio, was second again in 1:55.92 and Wilson claimed bronze in 1:56.65.

The five-year-old said she was "born ready for a puppy".

Big Boi, whose real name is Antwan Patton, tells the station that the dog is "something therapeutic" for Abriya. What's more, Big Boi and his younger brother James, also known as Lil Brotha, will not only pick up the vet bills for the new puppy, but have also pledged to pay off the rest of Abriya's GoFundMe campaign, a fundraiser that is going towards paying off her medical bills and making her family's washroom handicap accessible. "She's definitely inspiring and it just touched our heart, so we're just trying to do what we can do to help".
