YG's putting his money where his mouth is -- he wants young girls of diverse backgrounds to have opportunities in the tech world, and he's writing a $150k check to make it happen.
The Compton rapper delivered the check to Girl Code LA on Wednesday ... a move inspired by his little girl. Girl Code is an L.A.-based organization -- founded by Dez White -- pushing to develop and expose young women to computer science, business and software engineering.
He also made sure the current slate of young and bright G girls walked away with more than just a smile -- he gifted all the young coders with new "Beats by Dre" headphones. Come up!!
He also chatted with them about the importance of exploring nontraditional career paths.
YG for the win!!!
