E-40 Receives Honorary Doctorate Degree from Grambling State University
E-40 can officially be referred to as Dr. E-40 now that he has an honorary doctorate from the same school he attended as an undergrad way back in the ’80s.
The legendary rapper was awarded the degree Friday during Grambling State University’s commencement ceremony in Louisiana … and he made sure to drop some words of wisdom and encouragement to the graduating class before he left the stage.
And, it appeared to be a super special moment for 40, who’s proudly continued to support the University he once called home.
As we reported, earlier this year he donated $100K to the HBCU’s music department to help install a recording studio so students could follow their dreams as he did. GSU surprised him by naming it the Earl “E-40” Stevens Sound Recording studio.
For those who don’t know, 40 was a Grambling Tiger in 1986 … before he became the hip hop mogul we know today.
Looks like the good Doc’s still sitting front row, and not just at his beloved Golden State Warriors’ games!!!
