Lil Yachty is taking a page from the Nicki Minaj book of generosity. On Monday, Yachty announced his #SailingScholars plan to help students with the burden of college tuition. The Teenage Emotions artist also revealed that he's working on a way to take a few families shopping for the forthcoming back-to-school season.
Yachty made the announcement in a pair of tweets Monday, telling fans that additional information on both initiatives will be posted on his website soon.
Yachty's announcement comes two months after a similar effort from Minaj. When a fan asked Minaj on Twitter if she wanted to pay their tuition, Minaj agreed to cover the costs. "Show me straight A's that I can verify w/ur school and I'll pay it," she said. "Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! [sic]"
Within a week, payments to qualifying students were already in progress. Minaj then announced plans for an official charity related to her student loans and tuition payments initiative.
