After being detained at his high school graduation for throwing money on stage, Metro Marrs hits the ground running with his new song and visual for “Prosper.”
Last month, SinceThe80s and Quality Control rapper Metro Marrs was in the headlines throughout every publication across the country, all for being a charitable young man and making it rain at his high school graduation. He took the stage on the biggest day of his life and proceeded to throw $10 thousand dollars in the air. Many of his classmates went straight to Instagram to show off the money they caught and several made it known they would be putting the money in their scrapbooks to remember forever. As always, the authorities at the school decided to ruin things, having an issue with him giving back. He ended up being detained and escorted off stage.
Marrs later told Fox 5 that his money stunt wasn’t all in vain. The rapper hopes to begin a charity fund called The Loner Foundation scholarship that will provide financial assistance to students throughout Georgia.
“We are going to be giving out like a scholarship called the 10K rainy day fund scholarship, it’s basically we’re going to give $10,000 to the valedictorian and salutatorian,” he explained to the news outlet.
“Each class throughout all the schools, throughout Atlanta, Georgia, throughout the states, like bigger and bigger like no cap,” Metro Marrs added.
Although there was a hefty price to pay for the charitable deed, Metro told TMZ he plans on throwing a whopping $20,000 at his brother’s graduation next spring.
Metro is now taking all the attention and press and putting it towards his bright future and his post-high school career as a rapper. Today, he released his new single “Prosper” and also dropped a visual to accompany the new record. The visual and song come before his new mixtape Popular Loner, which is set to release on June 18th.
