Lil Baby returned to Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday (March 4) where he donated $150,000 for the newly established My Turn Scholarship fund.
With the help of Amazon Music’s Rap Rotation, Quality Control Music, Wolfpack Global and Motown Records, the scholarship will be awarded annually to a select group of students who have displayed excellence in leadership and the classroom.
In a YouTube video of the event, Lil Baby hit the stage and presented a giant check to school administrators as the crowd went wild.
Senior Vachon Raye Jr. told WSB-TV Atlanta how impressed he was with Lil Baby’s gesture.
“Him coming back here. Why would he want to come here?” Raye said. “To give back. For him to give back, really impact for me.”
Lil Baby is sitting on top of the world right now. His latest album, My Turn, is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart next week, according to Hits Daily Double. 2018’s Street Gossip moved roughly 88,000 equivalent album units and debuted at No. 2.
