During his speech, Nasir spoke about his personal life, admitting that he never finished high school and that he regrets the decision despite his years of a success as a musician.
“The reality of it is, you need to keep educating yourself, and I wish I had stayed in school. Be your own leader.”
He also announced that he now plans to obtain a Diploma and hopes today’s generation don’t make the same mistake of staying out of school. Other guests at the event included Bob Lanier and Ne-Yo.
