Often times we in the media overlook the positive endeavors of those who make notable contributions to the hip hop community. Rap mogul Rick Ross is putting his money where his mouth is and according to a recent interview with Bossip.com, the rapper shared his plans on setting up a scholarship program for those less privileged in the community as well as employees of his Wingstop franchise.

Ross told Bossip the following:

“To me, a company as huge as Wingstop, we’ve seen so much success doing what we’re doing, let’s take it to the next level. Let’s make ourselves that much more a part of the community…We see the drop out rates. We know what’s going on. So what’s the biggest thing that we could do? Wingstop as a company came together and put together an urban scholarship that’s for the underprivileged, that’s educationally based. That’s me talking to my audience. We need to hear this, and we need to bring all these ideas and concepts to the table and start as soon as possible.”
Forbes has estimated the rapper’s earnings last year at about 7 million dollars making him one of the highest paid on the Hip Hop Cash King list.
Now that’s hip hop!
