(NEXSTAR) — Rapper Kodak Black has offered to pay the college tuition of the children of two FBI agents who were killed in Florida last week, his lawyer confirmed.

Attorney Bradford Cohen said Black asked him to reach out to the FBI Miami Division after learning about the deaths of special agents Daniel Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger, who were killed while serving a search warrant.

“He’s always concerned over children that lose their parents,” Cohen said. “He came from a tough area where he saw a lot of hardship overtake people’s lives … that’s why he does a lot of giveaways.”

Last Tuesday, Schwartzenberger and Alfin were in front of child pornography suspect David Huber’s Sunrise home when the 55-year-old shot through the door, killing them and wounding three others, according to the FBI.

Schwartzenberger is survived by her husband and two sons, Alfin by his wife and son.

Both agents were themselves dedicated to protecting children – Schwartzenberger worked to combat the online victimization of young people while Alfin earned the Director’s Award, the highest honor an FBI employee can receive, for an investigation that brought down a child sexual exploitation site on the dark web.

Kodak Black has a history of generosity toward children in need, even before he was recently released from prison after former President Donald Trump granted him a commutation.

While still incarcerated in December of 2020, Black gave $20,000 to Broward County children in the form of gift cards, scooters and other toys.

“Every month he’s always doing something like that … he’ll sometimes go on GoFundMe and donate there,” said Cohen.

Cohen said now he is just waiting on a call from the Miami field office to figure out logistics. An FBI spokesperson said in an email Tuesday that the FBI was “not in a position to confirm whether or not an individual or organization has made a donation.”

Among the reasons cited for Black’s commutation was the 23-year-old rapper’s history of giving. He has donated notebooks to schoolchildren, supplies to daycare centers, $50,000 in relief money for restaurants in Florida, and food for the hungry.

Black was serving a three-year sentence for buying guns with falsified background documents.
