The internet has become notorious for churning out viral moments that get re-shared millions of times and eventually go viral. One example of this incident was Big Boogie's viral interview on Bootleg Kev, where he shared a story about the staggering scholarship offer he got from an unnamed college in Jacksonville. Here is the lowdown on what went down and why the internet isn't letting him live any of it down anytime soon.
While on the show with Bootleg Kev, the rapper talked about everything from his rising career to how rap veteran Yo Gotti discovered him. Somewhere in the conversation, fans were surprised when he shared that he chose to pursue music over attending college, but the story didn't end there. The Louisiana-born and Memphis-raised artist went on to say that the scholarship was somewhere in the ballpark of five, 10, or even 15 million dollars.
The entire situation unfolded after Kev asked an innocent enough question: "Where did you go to college?" The rest is history. In the video snippet that follows, the Memphis rapper continues to explain that although the college is in Jacksonville, he can't recall the college's name. While all this is happening, the host, Kev, tries to give the rapper an "out" by asking him if he is certain that happened, but the "Pop Out" rapper seemingly misses the memo. Watch the hilarious snippet below.
Unsurprisingly, when the internet caught wind of this exchange, they began to leave comments about the video and question the rapper's motives for not being forthright with his college story, and this even prompted some people to investigate just how much money the rapper was worth.
