Rapper Schoolboy Q made a visit to a high school in the US earlier this week, where he was granted with the honour of being ‘Principal for a day’.
The West Coast rapper released his third album, ‘Oxymoron’, in February 2014, receiving a Grammy nomination for ‘Best Rap Album’ in the process.
Schoolboy Q visited Maritime High School in Baltimore, Maryland on Wednesday (March 11), as part of educational non-profit Get Schooled’s ‘National Attendance Challenge’ project. The visit was the reward for students reaching an attendance goal.
“Keep working don’t listen to nobody if you believe in yourself, believe in yourself,” the rapper reportedly told the students. “If plan A don’t work, work on another plan A.”
Q added: “I see a lot more creativity. It’s a lot more rappers so a lot of good stuff gets overlooked. The bar keeps being pushed higher and higher.”
Chance the Rapper and Ludacris also both visited Alcott College Prep in Chicago for the same initiative on Tuesday (March 10).
