Bay Area rapper E-40 is giving back to the community where he was raised.

Earl Stevens donated $25,000 worth of Jansport backpacks and school supplies to kids at his alma mater, Franklin Middle School in Vallejo.

E-40 laughed and reminisced that he made the honor roll when he was in the 8th grade.

"School is everything," he said "Stay in school, stay positive and stay out of trouble."
