When we last spoke to Lil Bibby, the drill rapper had just completed his G.E.D. program and was making plans to attend college, majoring in either Psychology or Medicine in hopes of becoming a doctor. When asked about Sway Calloway shouting him out for his straight-A grades, Bibby says Sway and the folks over at Sway In the Morning actually pushed him to continue on with his education along with his mother and grandmother. Today, congratulations are in order as Lil Bibby is officially a high school graduate, and according to his latest Instagram post, UCLA may have a new student from Chicago sooner than later.
'F*** it I'm going to College #UCLA I'm Otw!," Bibby wrote underneath a photo of him holding his diploma - the 21-year-old completed Liberty High School's Vermont-based online program in August. "Knowledge is Power! And f*** all of my teachers that ever failed me," he continued. After dedicating his diploma to his family, Sway and his co-host, Heather B, both radio hosts reposted Lil Bibby's picture and shouted him out for showing "so much potential and setting a great example." "I'm so proud of @LilBibby_ for going back to get his diploma," said Sway. "Education is worth more than currency." Heather B went on to call the young emcee a "RESPECTFUL. SMART. And DESERVING of a formal education as welll as THE PURPOSE GOD has for him." "@lilbibby_ I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! I know we're not related, however brother I LOVE YOU and can't wait to see you so we can celebrate properly!"
