Rick Ross Teams Up With Rolling Loud And Donates $8K To Miami High School Students

Rick Ross recently donated funds to students at his high school alma mater, Carol City Senior High School, alongside Rolling Loud festival coordinators. The Miami rapper donated an estimated $8,000 to the local students.

Rozay Gives Back

The “Hustlin” artist donated to eight students at Miami Norland Senior High School and his alma mater, Carol City Senior High School in a collaboration with Rolling Loud to celebrate “Boss Up Day.” Eight students got $1,000 each, rounding out the donation to the schools at $8,000 in scholarships. 

“It’s a beautiful thing to be rocking with the Vikings and the Chiefs out here,” Ross said of his donations. 

“Him [Rick Ross] being an alumni” one of the students  who received the scholarship, De’Zyre Fredrick said. “and then coming back and giving back is something that everyone should do once they go off and do something successful.”

Those eight students will also be given free tickets to the 2023 Rolling Loud Festival in the Miami area in July.

Rolling Loud Revenue

Rolling Loud makes approximately $600K a show, which doesn’t even include other locations such as Portugal, Los Angeles, and more. In 2022, the popular festival had crowds in the throngs of 200K attend their festivals. Event tickets cost up to $400 per ticket.

Ludacris is another southern rapper who gave back to students. In December 2022, the “Get Back” rapper donated to Miles Elementary School alongside Mercedes Benz in Atlanta.

Through the partnership, Luda donated over 1000 pairs of shoes.

DJ Khaled Offering Four-Year Scholarships

Miami rapper DJ Khaled is also planning to donate similarly in 2023.  The “Wild Thoughts” artist is offering a scholarship to one seeking to attend the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports, and Entertainment at Long Island University (LIU).
