Lil Wayne has recorded a public service announcement for Get Schooled, a television program airing September 8th on several cable networks. “Growing up in a tough neighborhood is something I know a little about,” the rapper says in the PSA. “It’s not easy and you have to rise up and stand out. Right now, fewer than one in ten lower income students can expect to earn a bachelor’s degree. Odds like that, a better life seems harder to come by. America needs a stronger educational system and the time is now for bold reform. We owe the next generation a brighter future. Motivate. Educate. Elevate. Get Schooled.” Watch it below.
