Rapper JIM JONES has joined a campaign to encourage kids to complete their education.
The star has become a member of non-profit organisation Entertainers 4 Education Alliance (E4EA), joining the group's board of directors along with MTV presenter Sway Calloway and former New York Knicks basketball player John Starks.
Organisers of the E4EA recently named rap star Lil' Mama as the face of a new campaign, titled I Will Graduate, which urges teenagers to finish high school.
And Jones insists he is proud to be a part of the charity's work.
He says, "It's only right that I give back to the community and E4EA is the perfect organisation which offers such a great service where I can use my celebrity status to let our youth know to make smart choices and education is very important. Graduating from high school - that's balling!"
