The Pretty Girls hitmaker will perform at the White House in Washington, D.C. on Thursday (23Jul15) in support of the Reach Higher campaign and he will also join Obama, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Brown University student Manuel Contreras for a panel discussion moderated by E! News host Terrance Jenkins.
A statement from the rapper to Revolt.com reads: "I'm beyond honored and grateful to be involved in the First Lady's Reach Higher initiative and to have the opportunity to sit down with her, as well as perform for the kids of D.C. I believe that the youth are the first step in creating a better country, so to be involved in a program that aims to enrich their lives is truly the greatest reward.
"Having grown up in Washington, D.C., being invited to the White House by the First Lady is a dream come true. Thank you to Mrs. Obama and her entire staff for this opportunity."
