Rapper The Game has been named the Humanitarian of the Year by bosses at the Associates for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studios.

The How We Do hitmaker was feted on Saturday (22Nov14) at the 25th annual Talk Of The Town Black Tie Gala for his work with charity organisation The Robin Hood Project, which he founded in 2013.

Celebrating the accolade on Instagram.com, he writes, "It all started when I gave one kid from Africa $20. That created @therobinhoodproject & since then I've given away over a million dollars of my own money hand to hand & through charitable organizations.

"I am honored & more than appreciative of ABC (Associates for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studios) for this Humanitarian Of The Year award. I was just a poor kid from Compton... Never thought in a million years I'd have even an extra dollar to give away let alone a million. Humbled".
