College loans are burdensome. Still, some people are able to see the bright side and show love to companies like Sallie Mae. New Orleans rapper, Dee-1, recently released his new mixtape Free Lunch & Sallie Mae. After the company caught wind of the rappers’ project title, they congratulated him on his success and wished him the best on Twitter.

Dee-1 recently addressed the meaning behind his title in a press release.

“Everybody I know either grew up getting free lunch at school or had to deal with [student loan corporation] Sallie Mae when they got older,” said Dee-1. “So I dedicate this mixtape to me and my friends, looking at where we started, how far we’ve come, and where we’re going from here. When I posted that I had finished paying off Sallie Mae, people looked at me like a hero. So this is motivation for anyone trying to get over a hurdle in life.”
