Updated: October 16, 2019 10:25 PM

A former rapper is spreading a message of compassion for cats through music.

Sterling Davis, also known as the Trap King, travels around the country teaching other about preventing cat overpopulation without euthanasia.


"This for all y'all people that don't want them round. It's humane population control none put down," said Davis during a performance for elementary school students in Brooklyn Center.

Davis says he wants to teach compassion at a young age.

"A lot of young boys especially in the black community, they don't think that cats are cool. They think you should have a dog. So I want to show them you can still be cool, and volunteer and rescue and stuff like that. You don't lose cool points for compassion, that's the Trap King saying," said Davis.

Davis started working with animals during a break from a music tour, he never went back.
