Ghostface, whose real name is Dennis Coles, was performing in Denver Friday night as part of the Budweiser Fear Fest Halloween party when he hit the town after the concert with promoter Jonny Shuman, who goes by the name Jonny Denver.

As they were driving around the city after the gig, the rapper asked Denver to stop the car when he saw homeless people sleeping in the street.

In video posted on Facebook by Denver, Ghostface pulled out cash from his pockets and woke up the homeless, handing them cash.

According to Denver’s Facebook page, Ghostface handed $20 to every homeless person he saw that was sleeping on that block.
