Drake is currently doing a whole lot of good in Miami!

The 31-year-old rapper has been on an amazing giving spree as of late, which will be shown in his upcoming music video for his latest hit, "God's Plan." One of his gifts was a $50,000 donation to Lotus Women's Shelter, an organization that provides sanctuary, support, education, tools and resources that empower homeless women, youth and children.

Drake posed with a giant check, which Lotus Women's Shelter shared on Instagram on Wednesday. 

He also surprised University of Miami student Destiny James with a scholarship for $50,000, after she said she wrote an essay applying for scholarships last year.

"Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I've worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition," James wrote in an emotional Instagram post. "@champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!' You don't understand what this means to me! I would've never imagined this happening to me."

This happened today. I applied to scholarships last year for which I had to write an essay. I received those scholarships and thought that was the end of it. Apparently, my essay and my story made it to other departments. I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I've been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I've worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!' You don't understand what this means to me! I would've never imagined this happening to me. I'm just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed. I'm living out my dreams. God's Plan πŸ™πŸΎ

More good deeds included buying a van and ice cream for Overtown Youth Center, where it was clearly very much appreciated.

Drake even posed with a few lucky fans at a grocery store, where he paid for their items. 

"A real king went out and paid for everyone's groceries in the store, all the while encouraging people to buy more lol," one Instagram user wrote alongside a picture with the former Degrassi star. "BE GOOD AND IT'LL COME RIGHT BACK AROUND!!! 👏 so much love and bless this man 100 times over for all his generosity ❤."

Earlier this week, Drake was snapped filming on a giant crane over Miami Senior High School. According to The Miami Herald, he also gave the school $25,000 and said he would help design new school uniforms.

"The OVO school uniforms for you guys, ready," Drake says in a video of him addressing students at the high school, carrying a white T-shirt. "I'm sure you'll know when this video drops, I hope you're all proud, I hope you have a great year. I hope you go on to do incredible things. And the best news of the day is that the bell's about to ring, so school's over anyway."

Meanwhile, Drake recently made headlines for rapping about losing Jennifer Lopez in his song, "Diplomatic Immunity."  Last year, Lopez hinted that Drake was a "booty call" during her residency concert at the AXIS at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nevada.
