Earlier this week, Lil Pump effectively bamboozled most of the music media with a single press release announcing he was slated to give the 2019 Harvard Commencement speech, an on-point way to promote his new record Harverd Dropout. Since then, Harvard University confirmed that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is still the scheduled speaker, and not the 18 year old "Gucci Gang" rapper.

However, Pump did stop by the university's WHRB radio on February 28 for a "Lil Pump Herverd Takeover" for an unofficial commencement address, live interview, Q&A, and pop-up merch shop.

Check out his speech in the video above, and watch clips from the event below.
