The “FNF” rapper graduated from Martin Luther King College Prep High School in Frayser, located in North Memphis, Tenn. GloRilla, also known as Gloria Woods, donated the funds to support the high school’s visual arts program. She also gave the students a special performance of her hit song “FNF”

“I want them to be able to know that anything they put their minds to is possible. As long as they have a dream, you have to reach for the stars,” she said. “It feels really good to be able to have a platform and be able to come in and help students that come from where I came from.”

GloRilla said she felt “blessed” to give back to her alma mater, alluding to her hit single of the same name. She made history as the first female rapper to be signed Yo Gotti‘s CMG brand, receiving a $500,000 cash signing bonus.

“FNF,” also known as “Let’s Go,” maps on Billboard Hot 100 at No. 42 and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Mainstream R&B/Hip Hop Airplay card.

GloRilla announced a new collaboration with Cardi B, “Tomorrow 2,” on Wednesday (September 21). The song is a follow-up to another fan-favorite track of hers, “Tomorrow”, released under the CMG label.

GloRilla, who has since become central to a burgeoning rap scene in Memphis, was also nominated for a BET Hip Hop Award for Best Song of the Year.
