Lil Baby has teamed up with Amazon Music’s Rap Rotation, Motown Records, Quality Control Music and Wolfpack Global to develop the My Turn Scholarship. It will be presented to selected students at Booker T. Washington High School, in which the rapper attended.
On March 4, the ATL rapper presented the first award to the high school and explained the guidelines to the students.
The scholarship, named after Lil Baby’s album, is set to be given every year starting with 2020 to a student who shows leadership and is doing well in their classes. This year, the scholarship was given for $150 thousand, but in a video captured of the ATL rapper speaking at Booker T. Washington High, Lil Baby mentions that he hopes for the amount of the check to get “bigger and bigger.
Lil Baby not only donated money, but he also took a moment to give back to the students by performing a few songs for the high school. The video also captured students singing along and being hyped up with Lil Baby as he performs in a full auditorium-like area.
My Turn, Lil Baby’s second studio album, was released on Feb. 28, which includes features from Lil Wayne, Gunna, Lil Uzi Vert and more. The 20 track album is currently on all platforms.
