The rapper has awarded one Texas high school student a college scholarship worth $48,000 due to the G-Star program that is based in Houston. 

50 would make the announcement on his Instagram page as a way to celebrate Kennedy, a student from Kashmere High School. 

He would write, “My G Stars are no joke. Kennedy from Kashmere HS was just awarded a four-year scholarship to the University of Texas! I’m SO proud of these kids. H Town you know the vibes she gonna get to the bread. GLG #GreenLightGang #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.”

The G-Star entrepreneur program was created in 2021 by 50 Cent and his partnership with the Houston Independent School District. 

“These opportunities are huge opportunities that I didn’t have,” the producer said. “Being able to provide that in the early stages, I think it changes the direction and the choices that they will make. It prevents them from making some of the mistakes that I made.” 

This program was created to allow high school students to apply for paid internships as well as teach core business values and help the students to develop their own business ideas.
