Drake Pulls Classiest Move Ever And Visits Texas Girl With Cancer Just To Make Her Feel Special

Posted: Updated:

Well, Drake may have just officially won himself the title of sweetest rapper ever.

When 15-year-old Kennedy Brown was unable to finish the school year at Houston’s Carnegie Vanguard High School due to a terminal brain tumor, her classmates stepped up to make sure that she didn't miss out on any major school events.

Last Monday, they held a 'high school in a day' experience for the teen who's been battling cancer for two years, according to ABC News. The students threw an early prom for Kennedy -- and crowned her prom queen -- before holding a graduation ceremony during which she received her diploma. The mascot from her favorite NBA team, the Houston Rockets, was even on hand to help with the surprises.

But Kennedy's classmates had one more plan up their sleeves.

When their local TV station KTRK ran a story about the festivities, the students asked viewers to tweet at Drake, in the hopes of catching the rapper's attention so he would send a message to Kennedy. In just a matter of hours, the hashtag #DrakeForKen went viral, according to KTRK.

Sure enough, Drake heard them.

On Friday night, Kennedy's father, Tony Brown, received a call from Drizzy himself who shared some good news: He was going to make a special trip to visit Kennedy.

Drake spent this past Saturday hanging out with Kennedy, her family and a few of her friends, and, from the looks of his Instagram, he had just as much fun as the family did.

Stay classy, Drizzy.
