And when it comes to his 13-year-old son, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Taking a cue from his dad, Harlem Caron Taylor started a GoFundMe fundraiser for an Arkansas police officer to shed light on a cop taking strides to be a positive influence. Taylor began the account with the hashtag #AGoodSonForAGoodCop.

Officer Tommy Norman of North Little Rock Arkansas has been an advocate for change within his community, writing on his community-positive website: “If you can just take two minutes out of the day to go out and make a difference, whether checking on your neighbor if they’re elderly, cutting someone’s grass, or hold the door for someone. It’s really just acts of kindness and I think acts of kindness coming from a police officer means that much more to people because that’s not something you’re used to seeing.”

Taylor wrote: “Every police interaction does not have to be a negative one, and Officer Norman is changing that one person at a time. He has changed the way he approaches the community he patrols and is committed to building strong relationships with the residents.”

The first donation on the GoFundMe page, $1,000, came from Taylor’s famous dad.

The account surpassed its $50,000 goal within just one day.

“Not only am I proud of my son for taking initiative, I’m thankful that I’ve raised him with such a pure heart regardless of the negativities he’s seen me overcome,” the rapper wrote in the below Instagram post promoting his son’s selfless act. “’It takes a village to raise a child’ & this good cop is going the extra mile for a lot of young African American children… #BlackLivesMatter to more than just #BlackLives #AGoodSonForAGoodCop #StayCommitted.”

Way to go Harlem!
