TULSA, Oklahoma -

Will Rogers seniors will graduate Monday, May 14, but before that they had a special breakfast with special guest Danny Boy O'Connor. O'Connor is a hip-hop artist rehabbing the Outsiders house in Tulsa.

O'Connor hung with the students Monday morning and will be the commencement speaker at graduation.

He says Tulsa has greeted him with open arms from day one. He says that will be the theme for his speech to these seniors.

"Don't be afraid to ask for help - and being a 6'6" alpha male it's hard to ask for help, but I got to a point in life where I said I can't do this alone, and I need your help," he said.
