[UPDATE: February 26, 4 a.m. EST]: Harvard University has confirmed to various publications that Lil Pump will not be giving this year's Commencement speech.  In a statement, a representative for the university stated, “as previously announced, Angela Merkel will be Harvard’s Commencement 2019 speaker.” For those not familiar, Angela Merkel has been Germany's Chancellor since 2005.

Read our original story below.

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 from Warner Bros. Records, 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!!!!!!”

Last week, Lil Pump finally dropped his sophomore album Harverd Dropout on Warner Bros. Records. Stay tuned here for more details about the graduation.
