The Toronto rapper caused a frenzy by shooting the new clip at Miami Senior High and delivering an impromptu live show — but his legacy at the school will be lasting far longer than spectators' Snapchats. He donated $25,000 to the school and pledged to help redesign the school uniforms.
In addition to the donation to the school, Drizzy also singled out one particularly special student and gave her a $50,000 scholarship to the University of Miami.
Destiny James later took to social media to thank the rapper for his contribution to her education.
"Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I've worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition," she wrote.
After thanking the 6 God, she also showed some appreciation for the other God. Read her full message below.
This happened today. I applied to scholarships last year for which I had to write an essay. I received those scholarships and thought that was the end of it. Apparently, my essay and my story made it to other departments. I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I've been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I've worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!' You don't understand what this means to me! I would've never imagined this happening to me. I'm just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed. I'm living out my dreams. God's Plan 🙏🏾
