Speaking with The Shade Room, the Migos’s labelmate explained that he hadn’t seen his fellow classmates in person all year due to the pandemic and this was his way of giving back to some of them who may not have received money for their graduation.
“I was creating a moment that would be memorable,” said Metro, who waited until every student walked before throwing the money. “I had to do that for the last time. Everybody was lit! We graduating high school!”
Marrs was reportedly detained for several hours. It’s unclear if he is facing any charges related to the incident.
Marrs, who signed with Quality Control in October, joins a growing list of famous Langston Hughes High School alums including Summer Walker, Gunna, and Playboi Carti.
