There's no better way to help get kids interested in learning than by having some of their favorite rappers get involved, right?

Recently, Ellen DeGeneres decided to test out that theory, organizing a special treat for a group of second graders in North Carolina, enlisting the help of Big SeanMigosIce CubeLin-Manuel Miranda and Ty Dolla $ign.

For the project, DeGeneres worked alongside a teacher in North Carolina, Michael Bonner, who for the unique collaboration, wrote a special remix to O.T. Genasis' track "Push It," creating a version tailored to the second grade, titled, "Read It."

Much to the surprise of his students, Big Sean had a cameo in the music video the class filmed as a part of the festivities and the outcome truly is heartwarming.

"Reading helps us learn information for school / So we can answer questions and we can be cool," Big Sean raps, as part of the kid-friendly remix.

Throughout the video, Big Sean, Migos, Ice Cube, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ty Dolla $ign all participate in the fun, while also helping to advocate for education.

Take a look at the educational video's star-studded cast lending their talents to inspire some second graders in the adorable clip below.
