Ludacris might be out here buying groceries for strangers. Last week, Atlanta woman Therra Gwyn Jaramillo wrote a post on Facebook telling the story of how Ludacris picked up her Whole Foods grocery bill when she couldn’t afford to pay for it all. A local news team went to interview Jaramillo about the incident.
Down on her luck, Therra Jaramillo got a big surprise Monday when she was in line at the @WholeFoods in DeKalb Co. She didn’t have enough for groceries so @Ludacris, who was ahead her, stepped in to pay @JonShirek has the story at 5pm. #11Alive pic.twitter.com/ToaIE5dQxI

The New York Times then noted that this isn’t the first time Ludacris has apparently bought groceries for strangers. The newspaper unearthed a tweet claiming that Ludacris bought their cousin’s groceries, as well as multiple sightings of the rapper in Whole Foods and other supermarkets across Atlanta.
@Ludacris did I just see you in Whole Foods, in Phoenix?

NYT then reached out to Ludacris’ manager who confirmed his charitable ways. “Funny thing, Luda does these things all the time. But he doesn’t want to do interviews to highlight it. It’s just his heart.”
Read the full piece over at The New York Times, and look out for Ludacris in your local supermarket.
