Eager Fan Who Convinced Lil Uzi To Pay His College Tuition Finally Graduated
| LAST UPDATE 03/08/2022
Several years ago, Lil Uzi went viral after promising a fan in the middle of the mall that he'd pay for his $90,000 college tuition. Well, the dude finally graduated, and he's calling on Uzi to keep his word.
The fan who somehow convinced Uzi to fund his tuition is named Raheel Ahmad aka @bigassheel on IG. He recently graduated from Temple University in Uzi's home city of Philadelphia with a political science degree.
"[Lil Uzi], I finally graduated bro, I told y'all I don't bulls**t," he captioned the below photo. "Can you now come thru?!"
Judging by Raheel's posts, he doesn't appear to have kept in touch with Uzi over the years even though he fulfilled his part of the bet: graduating.
"If I pay for your college tuition are you gonna finish college? Or are you bulls*******?" Uzi says to him in the OG viral video. "Make sure you show me all of your transcripts and you'll get $90,000 from me."
The only time Uzi has spoken on the matter was near the beginning of 2021, and he seemed intent on holding up his end of the bargain: "I told him he has to graduate why would I pay and you didn't finish."
Raheel's plan for post-grad is to launch an NFT called GradOwl that will help gift scholarships to "at least 2 students per month."
Yo Gotti is another rapper who promised to cover a fan's college tuition at Clark Atlanta University. He responded to a female artist named Miss Blaze who submitted a verse for his "Dolla Fo Dolla" challenge earlier this month, giving independent artists a chance to land a huge feature on his album.
Along with his unofficial college fund, Uzi is keeping quiet about most things in his life. As fans patiently wait for his next project 'The Pink Tape,' he fittingly linked with 21-year-old British bedroom pop singer PinkPantheress and Mura Masa for a loose and smiley collab called "bbycakes."
