The comedian and Get Hard star partnered up with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) to give $50,000 scholarships to four high school seniors.

"This is me stepping up to the plate and saying what you're doing is dope," Kevin explained. "You're dope. You've got the opportunity to be the dopest of all dopetivity."

The students were being rewarded for their high GPAs and acknowledged for their financial need.

"My money went to a much much more useful cause I guess you would say than what I would have been doing with it at a strip club," Kevin joked.
