Rapper Lil Jon has been using his star power and wealth to help children in underdeveloped countries gain access to a proper education.
A school he helped fund in partnership with the charity, Pencils of Promise, broke ground last month in Ghana. Mafi Atitekpo DA Primary School will enroll 313 children. It is the second of two schools in the village of Mafi Atitekpo in Ghana, according to the charity. The first school, called Abomayaw D.A. Kindergarten, opened last October.
Lil Jon came to fame as a rapper and a DJ best known for hits like “Get Low,” “Snap Yo Fingers” and “Turn Down For What.” He won a Grammy in 2005 for best rap collaboration for the hit song “Yeah!” by Usher and featuring Ludacris.
