Rap star Lil Baby partnered with Amazon Music to celebrate the release of the deluxe version of his chart-topping album, My Turn. To sweeten the moment, the Atlanta rapper filmed the interview before a surprise concert at his high school, Booker T. Washington High School.
During the event, Lil Baby played a surprise set of new music before announcing he was donating $150,000 to establish a new scholarship for the high school. The “My Turn” Scholarship was established with the support of Amazon Music’s Rap Rotation, Quality Control, Wolfpack Global, and Motown Records.
In the interview, the rapper discusses his time at the high school and what it meant to him to return to such a familiar place. He also spoke about the importance of giving back and his hope that his scholarship will help inspire students, saying “when their time comes, it’s going to be their time—it’s my turn to get a scholarship, my turn to go to college, my turn to be a new leader of the world.”
Much praises to Lil Baby for going back to his community and creating a scholarship that will enhance the lives of many young people. A strong community with a better quality of life means safer and healthier living for all.
According to the great Tony Robbins: “The importance of giving back to society can’t be understated and that’s because the secret to living is giving. If you really think about it, what is life all about? Creating meaning. How do you create meaning in your life? It’s not about what you do for yourself: It’s about how you’re able to better the lives of the people around you – your loved ones, the people in your community or the lives of people somewhere else in the world. Meaning never comes from what you get, it comes from what you give.”
