Drama Beats Donates $50,000 To Rob Dyrdek’s Skate Park Dreams

When you’re mega-successful and take care of family, the best result is when that day rolls around and they can repay the favor.

Fantasy Factory star Rob Dyrdek has nurtured the career of his cousin (and former assistant) Chris “Drama Beats” Pfaff over the years, introducing him via his long-running MTV show (Rob & Big, Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory) and encouraging him as a producer for artists like Chris Brown and Yelawolf. Now a certified businessman in his own right, Drama has just donated $50,000 of his own money to Dyrdek’s current passion: building a safe, 24/7 skate park in Los Angeles for teenagers.

Drama has also gone one step further, donating a portion of the profits from a new shirt and new hoodie that his popular clothing brand Young & Reckless will be selling.

A spokesperson for Drama tells TMZ, “[Pfaff] worked as Rob Dyrdek’s assistant for multiple years picking up a lot of the skills and knowledge that Rob had for his businesses. Now it’s Drama’s turn to give back to Rob’s foundation by opening his very own safe spot skate spot.”

Drama will present the check this weekend in Los Angeles at a charity event for the Rob Dyrdek Foundation. The exact location of the park has yet to be determined.
