Drake shot ‘God’s Plan’ video at a Miami high school and surprised a student with a $50K scholarship. The Miami Herald reported 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.” Drake rolled out an enormous crane and soared above the high school’s baseball field, with the madness captured overhead by a drone. Students shared snapshots and videos of the scene on social media. Snapchat even had a filter that said ‘Drake Sighting’. According to The Miami Hurricane, Drake said at the end of his performance that he’s been to “a lot of places in the world,” but the University of Miami knew how to get the party started more than all the rest. “I don’t think I’ve ever been to a more turnt school than this. I wish you all the best in life, a lot of love, a lot of happiness for you, your friends and your family,” he said. Suffice it to say, there has never been a better day at high school.
