Young Money artist Drake is giving back to the community as he reportedly donated a recording studio to a Philadelphia high school.
According to Forbes, earlier this week, Drake visited North Philly’s Strawberry Mansion High School and announced that he’s going to build a recording studio for the students at the school.
While at Philly’s Strawberry Mansion High School, Drake told the students:
This about you. This about your principal. This about your future. I love you. I care about you. I want to see you succeed.
Watch the footage, via ABC News, of Drake making the announcement of building a studio for the school below:
Drake came know about Strawberry Mansion high due to an ABC News report that put schools issues in the spotlight as it was noted to be one of the most dangerous in the U.S. with more than 10 violent incidents per 100 students in each of the past five years.
Drake told ABC how the report affected him, and made him want to help:
I caught this piece that Diane did and I was like by the end of it I was so heavily affected that at the end I started questioning like major aspects of my life. It just really changed a lot about me.
