We always try to give credit where it’s due, and Tyrese Gibson just earned a ton of points in our book.

The controversial singer recently paid it forward by picking up the tab for a Compton teenager’s Morehouse College tuition.

The lucky Californian is popular Instagram personality, Lorenzo “Zo the Motivator” Murphy, who announced the heartwarming news on the social networking site Tuesday.

As of today, I begin my journey as a Man of Morehouse. I am beyond grateful and thankful to be a part of such great legacy. None of this would be possible without God, @tyrese, the support from my family and of course, my relentless hard work. Annually, Morehouse is around 45k-50k, and as you can imagine, that is a lot of money. I thank God for placing @tyrese in my life. It is because of him believing in me and investing in my future, that I am able to receive my education. I am amongst the world’s greatest leaders, and I want to thank @tyrese for giving me the opportunity to pursue my academic and career endeavors at Morehouse College.#zothemotivator #comptontomorehouse.

Murphy’s mother is currently working two jobs to make ends meet, so Gibson stepping up and assisting with that hefty Morehouse bill has to be a relief.

Major shout out to Ty for helping this young man chase after his dreams.
