Helping the lead rapper gain credibility in the tech field, so that he can inspire kids to become the next Bill Gates. “This is the beginning for me and more importantly there’s purpose behind it,” he said, adding that he’ll be able to tell kids that “this venture is proof that you too—we come from the same place—you just have to have vision and surround yourself with amazing skilled people to be able to do this type of work.”
