Lil Uzi Vert has just made a pretty big promise.

On Thursday night, a college student in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, saw Lil Uzi Vert at a department store and approached the rapper with a big question.

“Can you pay for my college tuition?” the fan, who has been identified as Temple University student Raheel Ahmad, asked.

The question stopped the rapper, who was walking through the store, which was likely in Philadelphia’s King of Prussia Mall, according to the Philly Voice.

“How much is your college tuition?” Lil Uzi responded.

“Ninety grand. I go to Temple, bro,” Ahmad said.

Lil Uzi paused before responding that he “could pay for that,” but with a caveat.

“But this is the thing, though: If I pay for your college, are you gonna finish college?” he asked.

“Make sure you show me all of your transcripts—everything. Show me all your papers and everything, and you’ll get $90,000 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.”

And so it seems, the two made a deal.

Ahmad filmed the whole encounter. Video of their exchange has been widely circulated on Instagram, of course.

According to the Temple tuition calculator, tuition for in-state students is $16,970 a year or $67,880 for four years while tuition for out-of-state students is $29,882 annually and $119,528 for four years.

Insider has reached out to Ahmad for comment.
