Last year Diane Sawyer did a segment where she highlighted a North Philly high school that has been described as “one of the most dangerous” in the country. Drake said that he saw the piece on Strawberry Mansion High, which is also the school Meek Mill went to, and wanted to do something to help. He announced,

“I caught this piece that Diane did, and by the end of it, I was so heavily affected. I started question, like, major aspects of my life. In the next few months, umm, I’m building a recording studio inside your school. This is about you. This about your principal. This is about your future. I love you. I care about you. I want to see you succeed.”

Drake surprised the kids with the studio and there were understandably ecstatic! For the big reveal Sawyer returned to the high school with Drake so that he could deliver it himself. Check out the videos below.
