At the launch of Wingstop’s online clothing and accessories store in New York recently, the “Diced Pineapples” rapper dished on the new initiative to Bossip:

“We see the drop out rates. We know what’s going on. So what’s the biggest thing that we could do? Wingstop as a company came together and put together an urban scholarship that’s for the underprivileged, that’s educationally based. That’s me talking to my audience. We need to hear this, and we need to bring all these ideas and concepts to the table and start as soon as possible.”
