Lil Durk Awards Scholarship To Two Howard Students Grammy-nominated rapper Lil Durk has linked up with Howard University and Amazon Music to give back. Funded through the rapper’s non-profit “Neighborhood Heroes Foundation”, the scholarship awarded two Howard students from Chicago provided them with $50,000 checks toward their freshman tuition. In an interview with Billboard, the rapper said having this scholarship is comparable to having a Grammy. “My team came together where we turned it up a notch. I wanted to come up with something that was different and impactful.” “It’s stuff we never got a chance to do or somebody never did for us. A lot of people don’t do it as far as the music era that we’re in,” says the rapper commonly known as Durkio. “In my age range, it’s more toward, ‘Let’s go feed them turkeys, let’s go feed them meals.’ Are you more inclined to like an artist if you know that they’re giving back in some way?
