High Snobiety – Lil Pump has finessed the opportunity of a lifetime as this year’s commencement speaker for Harvard University. WHRB Harvard Radio made a formal announcement about the honor this morning. According to an accompanying press release, the rapper will officially become the “youngest commencement speaker in history.” Yes, it is absolutely insane and we are determined to find out exactly how this even happened. Obviously, Lil Pump is very excited about the graduation based on this statement:
“You don’t gotta graduate from Harvard to do this speech,” he said.” I dropped out, so they called me like they called the guy that made Windows and PCs and shit 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!!!!!!”
If this is some elaborate guerilla marketing tactic that Lil Pump has organized with the Harvard student radio station then bravo; that guy should get to give the Harvard Business School speech. His new album is apparently called “Harverd Dropout” though so I’m staying woke on this one. But if thats not the case, then please resume reading the rest of this blog.
If I was a snooty rich kid getting ready to become an illustrious Harvard grad after
paying my dad paid $70K each of the last 4 years, I gotta tell you I’d feel a certain way about having Lil Pump give my commencement speech. Somewhere between annoyed and incredulous. Probably would be asking myself what did I just pay for if Pump is giving a commencement speech at the most elite school in the world yet can’t remember the name of the guy that invented “Windows and PCs and shit.”
With that being said, this kid is 18 years old and has probably made more money in the last 12 months than I’ll see in the next 10 years so I can’t exactly say he’s unqualified to give a speech on becoming successful.
I got Mitch Albom for my commencement speech, who I like, but he kinda mailed that one in as he essentially just read the spark notes of his book, Tuesdays With Morrie.
This all begs the question, who would you want to realistically give your commencement speech?
