Daz Dillinger

Makes It Rain ...

ON HOMELESS PEOPLE

EXCLUSIVE

Daz Dillinger making it rain.
Rap legend Daz Dillinger is taking the phrase "making it rain" out of the strip club ... and into the streets -- showering HOMELESS PEOPLE with airborne singles last week ... instead of scantily-clad women ... and TMZ has footage of the money mayhem.

The video was shot for a charity called MakeItRain.TV -- founded by radio host Tattoo from 93.5 KDAY -- and last Friday, Daz, Tattoo and their entourage hit Venice Beach ... where they unloaded $6,000 in singles on the boardwalk.

The cash stunt attracted hordes of money-hungry people, scrambling to pick up as much green as possible. Shockingly, no one was hurt.

In the video, Tattoo (the guy in the cap) approaches several homeless people and buries them in cash. His intentions are clearly good, but it's a little uncomfortable to watch -- because the act of throwing money at people could be construed as humiliating.

So we gotta ask ...

While I appreciate the sentiment behind this act and certainly think it is far more appropriate than making it rain on a load of strippers, it made me uncomfortable to watch and didn't seem well thought out.

Wouldn't common sense dictate that this situation could very quickly become dangerous/violent? Wouldn't common sense also dictate that, while 'homeless' people would most certainly appreciate the money, they may not appreciate having it thrown on them while being video taped so that someone else can get some PR? Finally, why would they assume these people are homeless since they appear chosen at random and simply seem to be hanging out on Venice Beach with everyone else?

If you really wanted to help and not simply bolster your own agenda, you would make the donations quietly after speaking with the person and without all the fanfare!! "making it rain" is nothing more than a douche move screaming "look at me and how fabulous I am" and demonstrates a complete lack of respect for the value of money no matter who it's raining on.

Yes, to those of us who don't have to worry about where the next meal is coming from, it's pretty messed up. To those homeless people who want to eat or drink or do drugs...money is money.

If you want to help them either give the money to a homeless charity or just give it to them directly in a respectful way... Throwing money at people or on the ground for them to pick up is just completely demeaning.

I think it's nice if the money went to the right ppl. I work in the Santa Monica UCLA ER and I can't tell you how many homeless people we have that would use that money towards their addiction to drugs/alcohol. They should have just set up a booth to provide them with food. Much love for Daz tho!

He SHOULD/I WOULD (if I had the money) give $$$ to an orphanage, a poor family with a disabled child, and or retirement home need repair. Homeless people are 50/50 - they could be winos or drug addicts.
