We love rappers’ good deeds. The 230 Flint Community Schools graduates at the Dort Event Center in Flint were in for a surprise when they were attending the ceremony on Tuesday.
None other than Eminem flashed on the screen out of nowhere in front them with a recorded message for the students. “What’s up Class of 2017? This is Eminem. I just want to say congratulations to the graduating seniors of Flint Northwestern, Flint Southwestern and Flint Accelerated Learning Academy,” said the rapper’s voice. “Congrats to all your guys’ hard work, man. You earned this moment.”
After Eminem’s acknowledgment, the graduates were surprised by the announcement that they will not be leaving the building with just their diplomas. The rapper’s Marshall Mathers Foundation also gifted a new set of Beats by Dre headphones to each graduate. The reaction from the students said it all. Watch a video courtesy MLive below.
