Nicki Minaj made some struggling college students very happy over the weekend. At around midnight on Saturday (May 6), the rapper began tweeting offers to pay fans’ college tuition, loans, and other bills.

It all started when Minaj was tweeting about a contest to join her at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards on May 21. When one fan suggested the rapper instead pay for their college fees, she happily agreed.  

"Show me straight A's that I can verify w/ur school and I'll pay it," Minaj tweeted. "Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious. Shld I set it up?"

Soon after, fans came out of the woodwork asking her to pay for everything from classes to books and supplies. After a request for $3,000 to pay for three classes, Minaj replied, "That's it? I'll send it tmrw. dm me ur bank info babe. Next!"

After agreeing to pay for several others bills -- ranging from $500 to $1,069 -- Minaj ended the charity spree telling fans she’d do it again in a “month or 2.”

"Ok u guys. It's been fun. Let me make those payments tmrw then see if I have any money left,” she tweeted.
