Ludacris made a hefty donation to a father-daughter duo looking to change the world of tech with their company Photo Patch.
The “Throw Them Bows” rapper surprised Jay’Aina “Jay Jay” Patton and her father Antoine with a whopping donation of $10,000 towards their new company during a recent episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
