OutKast rapper Big Boi is stepping up to help a little girl who was left paralyzed after she was shot while playing in a bounce house in April.

"My brother saw that story and he was like, 'Bruh, you gotta do something for this little girl, '" the rapper told WSB-TV.

According to WSB-TV, on Thursday (08-10-17) Big Boi presented Miss Abriya Ellison with the pup bred from his kennel business.

As Stereogum reports, he donated one of the bulldogs he breeds to Ellison, which she then named King. The 5-year-old finished three months of therapy last week. "Now she's going to have to walk this dog, so she's going to have to get out here and get to walking". One that her mother, Andreauna Douglas, said will help her recovery.

"I've been born ready for a puppy", Abriya said. "It's going to do nothing but help her", Douglas said.

"There's nothing like having a companion of a service dog or something therapeutic that you can love on (and) that can love you back", Big Boi added.

Patton and his brother said they will cover the puppy's vet bills and agreed to pay off Ellison's medical bills not covered by her GoFundMe page and renovate her bathroom to make it handicap accessible. "She's been through a lot, and to see how strong she is now, that was just ... very inspiring. So we're just trying to do what we can do to help".
