If you guys don’t remember some time ago there was this guy who came up to Lil Uzi at the mall and asked him to pay for his tuition. That guy was Raheel Ahmad, a 20 year old Political Science student at Temple University.
All this occurred at the King of Prussia mall outside Philadelphia when Raheel saw Lil Uzi Vert walking through the mall with all his entourage. Ahmad quickly pulled out his phone and began to record Lil Uzi while asking him to help pay for his college tuition!
“Yo Uzi, can you pay for my college tuition?” Ahmad asked in rush as the group walked by, the video shows. Ahmad continued, “Ninety grand — I go to Temple, bro,” causing Lil Uzi to take a halt and turn around. With no second guessing, the rapper replied with, “Ninety grand? I could pay for that.”
However, with the offer to pay the tuition came with some demands. Uzi follows his agreement by saying, “make sure you show me all of your transcripts, everything,” he said. “Show me all your papers and everything, and you can get $90,000 from me.”
Since then it seems like this agreement was forgotten but however, RapTV was able to reach out to Ahmad for his graduating year. They interviewed him about that once in a lifetime experience and Raheel talked about his conversation with Lil Uzi.
As the interview goes, RapTV asked what we all want to know, Did Lil Uzi ever pay the student's college tuition? Ahmad's response was, “Ok so as of right now it’s in the process. I’m not allowed to specifically say anything, but I know when I graduate it’s going to be paid. Roc Nation has put down $20k. When I met him the second time he told me Roc Nation has already put down $20k.”
In an Interview after posting the viral video, Ahmad acknowledged how “life can change in seconds.” He concludes with inspiring words, “It’s all a matter of mental toughness and focus. You got to just be confident in what you want to do.”
