Lil Pump will deliver the 2019 commencement speech at Harvard University. The news comes less than a week after the release of Pump’s second album 'Harverd Dropout.' Pump will become the school's “youngest commencement speaker in history.” Pump will join a list of important people who have given the commencement speech in the past such as Oprah Winfrey, John F. Kennedy, Mark Zuckerberg, J.K. Rowling, Bill Gates, Al Gore, and Kofi A. Annan.
When asked about his thoughts on giving the speech Pump responded “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!!!!!!” the rapper said in a statement.
