Drake visited Miami Senior High School to shoot the music video for God’s Plan on Monday.
According to social media, the 6 God rapper traveled to Miami to shoot the visual for his latest single, and he made sure to give back to the generous campus.
The Miami Herald reports that before he left, Drake gave the school a $25,000 cheque and said he would help design new school uniforms. School alum Edgar Grant Santiago rushed over when a friend told him of the visit, and said “that was truly God’s plan to bless the school.”

@champagnepapi , THE Drake, came to my job today and filmed his music video for “God’s Plan”. So happy to have been so close to him. It’s a once in a lifetime chance to be so close to one of your top favorite rappers. His guards pulled me out of the student mosh pit and then he asked “You good?” Yes Drake, I’m good 😍 Said to take a selfie with him and JUST when we were about to take one most pit began again and no selfie 🙁 Drake you owe me a selfie!!!! 😍❤️ He’s pretty patient and sweet to have done this for our school. Wish I could’ve talked to him a bit. Very appreciative to him for the donation to our school! #drake #champagnepapi #champagnemami #6god
