It even turns out the entire surprise was Eminem's. He reached out to the schools through his Marshall Mathers Foundation, which helps disadvantaged youngsters in his home state of Michigan.

The rapper's foundation is also going to provide a new set of Beats by Dre headphones to each graduate.

Flint schools Superintendent Bilal Tawwab spoke of the resilience of the students growing up in the area during the ceremony.

According to M Live, Tawwab said: "I would rather bet on a Flint graduate, someone who has been tested by adversity, who has transcended all the obstacles put in their way, than someone who has coasted through life with every advantage.

"You can do anything you want and for the first time in your lives you have the full power to set your own course. From this point on the decisions are yours."

It comes after the hip-hop star shared an appeal on JustGiving in partnership with The Red Cross for victims of the Manchester terror attack.

As well as supporting victims on social media, Eminem also donated an undisclosed amount to the JustGiving page.
