Oprah Winfrey, Mark Zuckerberg, Steven Spielberg, J.K. Rowling and Bill Gates now share something in common with Lil Pump…
As officially confirmed by WHRB Harvard Radio today, the multi-platinum selling modern icon and history-making teenage superstar will deliver the 2019 commencement speech at Harvard University.
This honor places him in good company with a bevy of game-changers, thought leaders and Nobel Peace Prize winners throughout history who have addressed the graduating class of the world’s most prestigious university.
“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 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!!!!!!” – Lil Pump
Given his status at the forefront of the culture and position as a voice for the youth, Harvard University handpicked Pump to be its “youngest commencement speaker in history.” This serves as a testament to his undeniable influence on the current generation.
As his new album Harverd Dropout conquers charts and sets streaming records, Pump enjoys a victory lap with this very special announcement.
Lil Pump’s second album and one of the year’s most anticipated releases, Harverd Dropout [Warner Bros. Records], is available now.
