Drake Donated $75,000 Recording Studio To Troubled Philly School

By HHL Editors

A year and half ago, Drake donated $75,000 so that Strawberry Mansion High, a troubled school in Philadelphia, could build a music studio.

But Drizzy committed more than just money. Members of his crew also assembled the equipment to make sure the kids got a professional set up.

So why are we talking about it now?

Well, Strawberry Mansion High has such a reputation for violence that it actually took them a while to find a music teacher.

But reports are the school is starting to turn around under Principal Linda Cliatt-Wayman, and a few weeks ago they finally hired a part-time teacher to help the students take advantage of Drake's gift.

Junior Josiah Showell is among those taking advantage, explaining, "The studio inspired me to bring out the love of music that I have inside me." According to Cliatt-Wayman, Drake's gift has many students excited about school for the first time.

Drake is taking a low key approach to his donation, and hasn't commented on it recently.
