Carlos Santana is more than just a shoe designer. Oh, yes he is. He’s also a famous musician. And he was in a pretty serious accident in Las Vegas on Friday. The media initially reported it as a minor fender bender, but it was actually pretty serious. Apparently, Carlos was so exhausted from all that shoe-designing that he fell asleep at the wheel and crashed his Fisker Karma so bad that the airbags deployed and the tow truck had to haul it away. But thankfully, Carlos wasn’t injured.

The Game was on the phone with Drake when he came across a story on the internet about a mom who lost her boyfriend and five young children in a house fire. They decided to help this poor woman by each chipping in $10K to help pay the funeral expenses. The Game posted about the tragedy on Instagram, saying, “I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time.” Drake later posted, “What (The Game) is doing will never be forgotten. Honored to be able to help people along side my brother..
