ATLANTA, Georgia – Rapper Travis Scott is making good on his promise to cover the tuition costs of five students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

“Hello, my name is Nasire Branch. Recently, I made the decision to commit to Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia where I will be majoring in Business Administration with a focus in marketing," Branched said in a Twitter post. “My dream is to have a career in creative directing. COVID has taken away my prom, my senior graduation and my freshman year at Morehouse. I have been listening to Travis Scott since my freshman year of high school and today he tweeted that he wants to take care of 5 students' tuition! THIS COULD CHANGE MY LIFE!”
Taylor Ivy, a freshman at Howard University, became the latest HBCU student to have her tuition covered by Travis on Wednesday.
