On Tuesday (Nov. 14), GloRilla surprised students at Westside Middle School, which is located in Memphis, Tennessee’s Frayser neighborhood where she grew up. In a video shared by WREG News Channel 3, the hometown hero revealed a $20,000 donation that will go to the institution’s fine arts program.

“To chase your dreams, whatever you want to do is possible. I’m living proof because I came from this exact neighborhood, this exact school,” she said to the outlet while at her alma mater. “And whatever you want to do, you can do it. Manifest and actually work to achieve it.”

As REVOLT previously reported, GloRilla blessed her former high school with a big check in 2022. Martin Luther King Jr. College Preparatory High School received $25,000 from the Collective Music Group-signed artist for the same purpose. “Growing up, didn’t nobody come up to our school when I was coming here [to] do stuff like this, so it feels real good to be able to have the platform to be able to come back and help students that come from where I came from,” she told reporters at the time.

A lot has changed for GloRilla since the release of the Hitkidd-backed “F.N.F. (Let’s Go)” more than a year ago. She liberated her debut EP, Anyways, Life’s Great…, which boasted assists from Cardi B, Yo Gotti and Niki Pooh across nine tracks. Months after its initial release, she kept the momentum going with a Bonus Edition of said project, complete with four additional cuts and collaborations with Lil Durk, Trina and Gloss Up.

Since then, GloRilla kept her growing fanbase fed via drops like “Lick Or Sum,” “Wrong One,” “Cha Cha Cha” and “Pop It.” She also appeared on songs like G Herbo’s “Outside,” iCandy’s “Keep Dat N**ga (Part 2)” and Kaliii’s “Can’t Get ‘Em.”
