I wish stories like this popped up more often.

According to AllHipHop, Ice Cube has awarded MI native, Lindsay Miller, with the Ice Cube Scholarship, a full-ride-tuition to McNally Smith’s world-renown College of Music.

Miller’s application won out over thousands submitted for the West Coast veteran’s Ice Cube Scholarship for Recording Technology.

Miller, a native of Holland, Michigan and already a first year student at McNally, was required to produce an original track personally reviewed by Cube.

The young scholar wrote and produced the song while simultaneously working a full time job and completing her freshman final exams.

“I was ecstatic when I learned that I won,” an excited Miller told AllHipHop.com. “The school offers the most hands-on and real-world experience working with record labels and studios anywhere in the world.”

While most current rappers simply mouth off about how much gwop they got (or pretend to have,) it’s nice to see one of the founders setting a positive example for all the knuckleheads out there.
