KANYE West bought nearly all 4,000 gifts being handed out at a toy drive in his native Chicago on Sunday.
The rapper, 44, was dubbed a "modern-day Santa" when he turned up at the event at Kennedy King College and made the huge donation.
Chicago Alderman Stephanie Coleman told ABC7: “I’m so proud that Kanye is, once again, responding to our request to help the children of Englewood and beyond.
“He is no stranger to our community. His presence has always been felt in our neighborhoods and he loves visiting, but this Christmas he has truly been our modern-day Santa Claus.”
Each family at the toy drive on the south side of Chicago was also treated to food, games, and prizes.
Kanye's latest philanthropic gesture comes just weeks after he donated 1,000 meals to the homeless charity Los Angeles Mission.
He has also vowed to be homeless for a year and transform his real estate empire into churches and an orphanage
The musician hopes to transform his mansions into an "artist commune", telling 032c via NME.: "We are under capitalist rule, and it’s killing us. It’s time to change that.

"I’m going to be homeless in a year. I’m going to turn all the homes I own into churches.
"We’re making this orphanage, and it will be a place where anyone can go. It should be like an artist commune. Food should always be available."
Meanwhile, his ex Kim Kardashian has been enjoying spending quality time with her new man, Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson.
KIM'S MOVING ON
They were seen on a sweet movie date together at the Atrium Stadium Cinemas at the weekend.
Their romantic meetup continued with dinner – which also included "champagne and a private room" – at Angelina's restaurant.
Kim and Pete have been seemingly going strong since they met when she hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time back in December.
Not long after, they were spotted at Knott's Scary Farm in California. They were joined by Kourtney and now-fiancé Travis Barker.
Despite Kim's new relationship, Kanye has been making repeated public pleas to reconcile with her.
Earlier this month, he begged Kim to take him back at his Larry Hoover benefit concert with Drake.
NOT LETTING GO
The rapper repeatedly rapped: “I need you to run right back to me” before adding: “More specifically, Kimberly.”
While the plea made the crowd wild as they screamed with excitement, Kim doesn't seem happy with the shoutout.
Immediately after the concert, Kim filed to become legally single from Kanye after he "embarrassed her" with his pleas.
The SKIMS founder filed for divorce from Kanye in February after nearly seven years of marriage.
They have four children together – North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
