Lil Uzi Vert is helping one college student say "not today Sallie Mae!"
On Thursday (August 22), the 25-year-old rapper decided to alleviate all a guy identified as Raheel Ahmad's student debt after the college student simply asked him to do so.
While Uzi was walking through a department store, Raheel yelled: "Uzi! What's good, bruh? Can you pay for my college tuition?"
Without hesitation, Uzi stopped in his tracks, turned around and asked how much he needs. "Ninety grand. I go to Temple, bro," Raheel responded as he continued to film the encounter on his phone.
"Ninety grand? I could pay for that," Uzi said. "But this is the thing, though: If I pay for your college, are you gonna finish college or are you gon' bullsh*t?"
Raheel then assured Uzi that he would definitely finish, saying "100%, I don't bullsh*t." And just like that, Uzi asked for his Instagram handle, proof of his enrollment at the school and promised to make it happen. "Make sure you show me all of your transcripts—everything. Show me all your papers and everything, and you'll get 90 thousand from me. I'm serious," Uzi said. "If you don't show me, you won't get 90 grand from me ... you gotta show me the proof."
See how it all went down below:
Earlier that day, Uzi tweeted about finally being in a good place after his grandmother, who raised him, was released from the hospital after months of rehab due to her having a "tumor over her eye" that later caused her to have a stroke.
"I’m scared excited happy and sad but mostly thankful. So Today my Grandma is coming home she was in the hospital and rehab for months she cannot walk. She cannot talk all the way but I feel her gettin better by the second," he wrote. "My grandma been in the hospital for MONTHS man she had a tumor over her eye the Doctors removed half of it when she finally woke she had a stroke on her entire left side and cannot move it . IF YOU DONT KNOW THATS WHO RAISE ME I love my grandma more than Clothes."
"I Know you beautiful ladies and successful gentlemen prolly saying He Should Of Been Told Us but I never been threw this I needed privacy I needed Family comfort because I just didn’t understand," he continued." I Been Flexing So Hard And Buying The World 🌍 Because Deep Down I’m Hurt ......"
