This past Wednesday, March 4th, Lil Baby returned to his old high school, Booker T. Washington High School, in Atlanta, where he told high school students that he started a scholarship, the My Turn Scholarship fund. The scholarship is backed by Amazon Music’s Rap Rotation, Quality Control, Wolfpack Global, and Motown Records. The award is named after his latest studio album, My Turn. The album, according to projections from Hits Daily Double, is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

In the video, Lil Baby announced to the students, “Every year, I’m gonna be giving a scholarship. It’s gonna be the My Turn Scholarship to somebody at Booker T. Washington High School. So it’s really gonna be like to the best student in each grade… I’m gonna give a $150,000 to Washington. So, some of y’all gonna have a chance to get a My Turn scholarship. This is just my first year. So, next year, hopefully, we will return bigger and better.”
