Lil Baby never imagined he’d ever walk the halls of his former high school, Booker T. Washington High School, again. And, he certainly never thought he’d return to the school on the heels of potentially his first no. 1 album to deliver a $150,000 check to help students attend college.
“From the time I left here to now, I’ve had a crazy journey,” the rapper, who stopped attending school around 10th grade, told Billboard. “Just to be able to come back on a positive note and actually touch this ground again and see some of these faces again... I can’t even explain it. I was once in a state where I knew for sure I wasn’t ever coming back here.
“To be able to come, give back and be something, and perform for children, that means everything to me,” he added.
