It seems like Meek Mill is on quite the mission to better himself. Just recently, he turned a petty social media beef with 50 Cent into an opportunity to do some good in the world, donating $50,000 to the Flint water crisis and challenging 50 to do the same. And now? The Philly rapper is pursuing higher education.

While speaking to students at Overbrook High School in West Philadelphia on Friday, Meek spoke about the importance of education and revealed that he's currently a college student himself.

"I just enrolled in college myself," Meek told the crowd. "Shout out to everybody in here that's going to college"

Meek dropped out of high school during his junior year and later got his GED. No word yet on what he's looking to major in, or even what university he'll be attending, but kudos to him for using his influence to try and inspire others. Watch a clip of his announcement and see the audience's enthusiastic reaction.
