Though Lil Yachty wasn’t able to finish college, the affable star apparently still relishes the idea of spending time in the classroom. On Monday (Oct. 9), the self-proclaimed “King of the Teens” attended a music journalism class in Georgia State.
Students expressed their excitement on Twitter with photos and tweets regarding the rapper’s presence. “Lilyachty is at GSU right now and i just left campus an hour ago….*skrrrrrt* i’m going back,” said one Twitter user. “Wtf I leave school for 10 minutes and Lil Yachty shows up,” tweeted Brackens1212.
Yachty joined the class with his father, photographer Shannon McCollum, presumably for a converstion about the music industry.
Georgia State’s communication department also gushed at Yachty’s participation in class by tweeting the following: “So.. @lilyachty just dropped in on our Music Journalism course! Kudos to @Journalistorian for always doing cool things for our students.”
In July, Yachty vowed on Twitter to pay several students’ tuition. “I will be pay some tuitions this year,” he wrote. “I’m gonna drop details and very soon on how u can get in on this. I love you students.”
Take a look at some of the tweets below.
