Meek Mill is headed back to school. The Philly rapper has enrolled in college.
He made the surprise announcement while visiting Overbrook High School in his hometown on Friday (Jan. 22). He got on stage and spoke to the students, encouraging them to stay in school and get an education.
“I just enrolled in college myself,” said Meek. “I took it upon myself to do that because I want to be the best at what I do. I want to be the best at what I do so I enrolled in college to educate myself, get myself more knowledge because knowledge make money, being educated makes you money and I like making money and taking care of my family.”
During his motivational speech, he also told the students to invest more time into bettering themselves. “DC4, Nicki Minaj, Drake ain’t gon’ benefit ya’ll,” he joked. “When I was your age, I never had a chance to talk to Jay Z, I never had a chance to talk to Beanie Sigel to ask them how can I get there.”
Meek is currently awaiting his Feb. 5 sentencing for parole violations. In the meantime, he is not allowed to leave a five-county area around Philadelphia or perform at any event in or outside Philly.
