Lil Baby's new album My Turn is predicted to hit top spot on the Billboard Top 200 charts and so he's decided to give back to those who helped him get there. Yesterday the rapper launched a new scholarship program for his former high school, Booker T. Washington High School.

In the video below, Lil Baby explains, “Every year, I’ma be giving a scholarship, it’s gon’ be the My Turn Scholarship to somebody at Washington. So it’s really gon’ be like [to] the best student in each grade or something like that. I ain’t really sure how they gon’ pass it out.”

The initiative is called the My Turn Scholarship and was created with the support of Amazon Music’s Rap Rotation, Quality Control Music, Wolfpack Global, and Motown Records. The fund will be given each year starting in 2020.

Lil Baby rolled out the annual scholarship himself with an appearance at his former school. And, as if that wasn’t enough, the 25-year-old Atlanta rapper made an extra-generous gesture donating $150,000 for his alma mater. Watch him sign the check below.
