[indistinct chatter]

>> OH, THEY'RE UPSTAIRS.

LOOK AT THAT.

TODAY IS A VERY SPECIAL DAY.

IT'S NIQ NIQ'S GRADUATION, AND

HER AND MY NIECE BAHJA HAVE

BEEN WORKING SO HARD, AND WE

FINALLY GET TO CELEBRATE IT.

>> GOOD AFTERNOON, EVERYONE.

THE FRAZIER ELITE EDUCATIONAL

SERVICE IS HERE TODAY TO GIVE

HONOR TO OUR FIRST GRADUATES.

>> SINCE NIQ NIQ AND BAHJA WAS

ON THE ROAD, YOU KNOW, ALL THE

TIME, THEY COULDN'T GO TO

REGULAR HIGH SCHOOL.

INSTEAD, THEY WENT TO HOME

SCHOOL THAT WORKS WITH THEIR

SCHEDULE.

THAT'S WHY IT'S ONLY TWO OF THEM

GRADUATING TODAY.

>> BAHJA RODRIGUEZ.

[cheers and applause]

>> DR. FRAZIER, THANK YOU FOR

YOUR STRONG LEADERSHIP.

UM...

UM--

[sobbing]

ZONNIQUE, YOU'RE A TRUE--

[crying]

[laughter]

[cheers and applause]

YOU'RE THE TRUE DEFINITION OF

A SISTER, AND I JUST--I WOULDN'T

WANT TO GRADUATE WITH ANYBODY

ELSE BUT YOU.

[sobbing]

>> all: AW.

[applause]

>> ZONNIQUE PULLINS.

[cheers and applause]

>> OKAY, THANK YOU, BAHJA.

[laughter]

I WANT TO THANK MY FAMILY,

FROM MY GRANDPARENTS TO MY

PARENTS, FOR HELPING ME GET

THROUGH THIS OBSTACLE OF MY

LIFE.

IT'S ONLY THE BEGINNING, AND

I PROMISE I WILL CONTINUE TO

MAKE YOU GUYS PROUD.

[cheers and applause]

>> ALL RIGHT!

SEEING YOUR CHILD GRADUATE AND

WATCHING HER START TO TAKE THOSE

STEPS INTO ADULTHOOD, IT JUST

MAKES ME SO PROUD OF HER.

[cheers and applause]

I'M SO HAPPY TO SEE HOW

MUCH MY BABY GIRL'S ACHIEVED.

>> AGAIN, VERY, VERY, EXTREMELY

PROUD OF YOU, SWEETHEART.

YOU KNOW WHAT?

WHEN I SAW HER, IT JUST BROUGHT

BACK SUCH FOND MEMORIES LIKE

WHEN I USED TO RUN AND SAY,

"NIQ, NIQ, NIQ," AND SHE'D JUMP,

AND I'D THROW HER UP, AND THEN

I SEE HER IN THE CAP AND GOWN--

I DON'T THINK SHE'S GOING TO

FALL THE SAME AS--

AH, WELL, WHERE DOES THE TIME

GO?

>> AM I GONNA GRADUATE?

AM I GONNA GRADUATE?

>> ARE YOU GONNA GRADUATE?

>> YES.

>> YES, YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO

GRADUATE, SON.

>> DID YOU EVER GRADUATE?

>> LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING--

MAMA GOT SIDETRACKED.

I WAS WORKING ON MY ALBUM, YOU

KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?

AND--

>> SO YOU DID NOT GRADUATE?

>> I DID NOT GRADUATE.

WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL,

I WAS 17, AND I DIDN'T REALLY

GET TO FINISH SCHOOL BECAUSE

I WAS, LIKE, TRAVELING AND

RECORDING TILL 5:00 IN THE

MORNING.

I'M LIKE, "I'M NOT GOING TO

SCHOOL."

I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO BE BIG.

LITTLE DID I KNOW THAT A COUPLE

YEARS LATER, MY GROUP WOULD BE

OVER WITH.

SEEING NIQ NIQ UP THERE TODAY

MAKES ME THINK ABOUT GOING BACK

TO GET MY G.E.D.

[chuckles]

>> I'M NOT GONNA GRADUATE

EITHER.

>> YES, YOU ARE, BOY.
