Lil Pump Heading To Harvard For 2019 Commencement Speech

Lil Pump has managed to pull of a bit of a ruse, using his record label to help convince the media and fans that he would be speaking at at Harvard University. Especially if you're going to Harvard.

Days after Lil Pump released "Harverd Dropout", it's being reported that the rapper will deliver the commencement address at the university later this spring. Well, not for some. It's possible that Lil Pump could be one of those speakers?

While some folks thought it sounded fishy that a then-17-year-old rapper who liberally uses the phrase "essketit" would have gone to Harvard, it turns out they were pretty correct.

Instead, "Lil Pump: Harvard x Harverd Activation" figures to be nothing more than a speaking engagement on Harvard college radio, but in order to stick out amidst a frenzied media cycle, Pump and his team made a decision to partake in a little roleplay-embellishment to enrich the brand. Lil Pump never attended Harvard - or, for that matter, Harverd. Alas, students will have to settle for hearing Pump speak with the campus radio station WHRB this upcoming Friday.

In the days leading to the 2019 trade deadline, Anthony Davis requested a trade from the team that he had been with since 2012. He said that he will play for whoever wants him since it was his job and the trading talks are already out of his control.

All the more reason he is now Harvard's youngest commencement speaker in their 382-year history.

There was even a quote from Lil Pump that included the name of one of his songs: "You don't gotta graduate from Harvard to do this speech". You just need a cap and gown, which I got. Yes, they are the future. Harvard officials told the outlet, "As previously announced, Angela Merkel will be Harvard's Commencement 2019 speaker". This is a preview of my speech, one word: "ESSKEETIT!"

The Harvard theme has always been associated with the Lil Pump brand mythology, so it's easy to see why they opted to further the narrative, even at the risk of putting the Harvard graduating class in the throes of a panic attack.
