Eminem Provides Graduating Students In Flint A Pair of Beats by Dre Headphones

Giving back is always great when possible. Eminem recently gave back, doing so by congratulating more than 230 graduates from Flint Community Schools by giving them each a pair of Beats by Dre headphones. Along with the gift, they also got a pre-recorded congratulatory message from the rapper which was played on a big screen at the ceremony. Eminem stated: “What’s up Class of 2017? This is Eminem. I just want to say congratulations to the graduating seniors of Flint Northwestern, Flint Southwestern, and Flint Accelerated Learning Academy. Congrats to all your guys’ hard work, man.

You earned this moment.” Betty Davis, a senior from Flint Northwestern, spoke on the event saying “I thought he was just going to give his speech on the speaker and it just was going to be that. I greatly appreciate Eminem for giving out like he did. He didn’t have to and the fact that he can see so much potential in Flint and Flint students, it just makes the gift so much more worth keeping.” Have a look at the video below and speak your thoughts in the comments below. Stay tuned for more from Eminem coming soon.
