E-40 is giving back to the students at Grambling State University in Grambling, Louisiana.
The 55-year-old rapper and entrepreneur contributed $100,000 to his HBCU alma mater to support a number of the university’s music programs. Specifically, the money went to aid the school’s music department and the marching band. It also funded the creation of a recording studio, “so students can follow their dreams in music like he did,” a press release said.
Grambling State University then shocked E-40 by naming the studio after him, calling it the Earl “E-40” Stevens Sound Recording Studio.
Check out videos and images of E-40, who was accompanied by his wife, GSU President Rick Gallot, and Dr. Nikole Roebuck, who is Grambling’s Music Department Chair and Director of Bands, below.
