Lil Pump will be joining the list of Harvard speakers: Steven Spielberg, J.K. Rowling, Oprah Winfrey, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates
Lil Pump, the multi-platinum selling, "Harverd Dropout" rapper, was confirmed by WHRB Harvard Radio earlier today that he will be doing the 2019 commencement speech at Harvard University. He joins the ranks of past commencement speakers who have won Nobel Peace Prizes and will also be the youngest to ever to do so in history for ANY university.
Lil Pump commented regarding his honor, "You don't gotta graduate from Harvard to do this speech. I dropped out, so they called me like they called the guy that made Windows and PCs and sh-t before I was born. You just need a cap and gown, which I got. When I found out, I was happy to give everyone a lesson. I'm all about the youth. Yes, they are the future. This is a preview of my speech, one word: ESSKEETIT!!!!!!"
Who is Lil Pump?
If you're wondering "who the heck is Lil Pump?", he's a rapper known for his colorful dreads who took the rap game with over 2 billion streams (audio AND video combined). He's known for songs like "Esskeetit," and "Gucci Gang" (which happens to be certified 4x platinum). He also collaborated with Kanye West on "I Love It."
Not bad for a Harvard dropout.
