Thursday, Philadelphia Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin appeared on The Breakfast Club, where he made a $100,000 donation to the radio show’s #Change4Change initiative. However, Rubin also announced an expensive plan he has with his buddy Meek Mill.
In the clip above, Rubin breaks down his plan with Meek at roughly the 1:45 mark.
“We care about education a lot,” Rubin says. “I don’t know if you guys saw, Meek and I have been talking a lot about education. We’re actually gonna commit, between Meek and I in Pennsylvania, millions of dollars to Pennsylvania schools this year.”
Almost three weeks ago, Meek foreshadowed the announcement with a then-cryptic tweet.
“Since they got like 30 abandoned schools in Philly can we buy one and build a super school in our own neighborhood,” Meek said.
Since they got like 30 abandoned schools in Philly …. can we buy one and build a super school in our own neighborhood! I hang wit a lot of billionaires that really care about education .. “all we need is one school to start! “

As of Thursday, Meek hasn’t publicly commented on his plan to donate with Rubin. We’ll have more news on this story as it develops.
Recently, Meek said that his next album *could* drop before the end of the decade. The Philadelphia native also recently broke down his top five favorite rappers during his latest fan-favorite #AskMeek session on Twitter.
Meek Mill is a Warner Music artist. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.
