Rapper Lil Uzi Vert Promises to Pay $90,000 for Student's College Tuition

By Jeff Mazzeo

Lil Uzi Vert is doing his part to help kids stay in school ... and his part is promising to pay $90,000 for one lucky student's college tuition.

The "Money Longer" rapper was strolling through a department store with massive security guards in Philidelphia, PA when one student approached the rapper and took his shot.


"Uzi, what's good, brah?" The fan called out to the artist as he filmed the interaction with his phone. "Can you pay for my college tuition?"

That question caused Uzi to stop and immediately turn back and ask the student, who has now been identified as Raheel Ahmad, how much tuition costs.

"90 grand. I go to Temple, bro," Raheel replied to the hip-hop artist.

The rapper stated that he could pay for that but not without conditions.

Uzi asked Raheel for his Instagram handle and told him that in order to get the money, he would have to send proof that he was actually a student.

"Make sure you show me all of your transcripts, everything," Uzi said. "Show me all your papers and everything, and you'll get 90 thousand from me. I'm serious. If you don't show me, you won't get 90 grand from me ... you gotta show me the proof."


Uzi may have been a little emotional when the encounter went down because he recently tweeted that his grandma has been going through serious health problems.

He told fans, "IF YOU DONT KNOW THATS WHO RAISE ME" and said that he loves her more than clothes.

He ended his series of tweets with encouraging words. "I love you grandma you got this," Uzi wrote.
