21 Savage is putting more than coins into the piggy banks of some lucky teens.

The rap artist appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday and performed his hit “Bank Account” and revealed that he started the 21 Savage Bank Account Campaign to help educate kids about financial literacy, reports Rolling Stone.

While most of his rap songs outline a lifestyle of living lavishly, 21 Savage said he didn’t know about bank accounts growing up and wants his supporters to learn about money management early on.

“Now that I do have money in my bank account, I want to help kids with a background similar to mine to get smart about their money,” 21 Savage said.

With that in mind, 21 Savage said he will give 21 teens $1,000 to help each open a personal bank account. He’s also teamed up with the non-profit organization, Get Schooled. And together they will work to educate the teens about money management and budgeting.

For teens who want to take on the challenge and learn how to stretch their dollars, they can get more information on the Get Schooled website.
