You can call Juicy J a lot of things, but liar shouldn’t be in your list of adjectives. The Taylor Gang entertainer recently made good on his promise to deliver a $50,000 scholarship to one lucky student who knew how to back that a** up. However, for those who read in between the fine print, getting buck for WSHH wasn’t one of the mandatory requirements. The “Bandz A Make Her Dance” rapper just said that to get your attention.

Today, January 13, it was revealed that Zaire Holmes is the lucky recipient of the Juicy J Scholarship Foundation’s act of generosity. The single mother and full-time student has big aspirations to become a doctor at the University of South Florida after receiving her bachelor’s of science in biology. After she was named a finalist in the competition, Juicy J surprised her on camera with a life-sized check for the scholarship payment.

Through tears, she managed to squeak out a “thank you” to her Hip-Hop beneficiary.

The rapper born Jordan Houston also shared his humble beginnings with Holmes saying, “I come from six people living in a two-bedroom apartment hustling,” he said in a deep, reflective tone. His latest album, Stay Trippy even detailed his plans to make the dream a reality on the song “Scholarship” with a bridge that goes, “Say you need some extra cash to pay for college with/And it just so happens I got a lot of it.”

This time, it was without the NC-17 content. As for the respectable ratchets who twerked for the tuition, it’s time to pick up a book.
