During the ongoing rise of the Chicago Hip-Hop scene, Lil Bibby has emerged as one of the city’s brightest stars but education was the last thing on his mind. Now, it appears that college is on the horizon for the young rapper after he posted a photo of his high school diploma via his Instagram page.

Lil Bibby, born Brandon Dickinson, posted a photo of himself holding his diploma from Liberty High School, an official distance learning high school.  The 21-year-old was beaming in the photo, and properly stunted in a vulgar but thankful caption for his photo along with shouting out a pair of important figures that influenced him.

From Lil Bibby’s Instagram:

F**k it I’m going to College UCLA I’m Otw! I would like to dedicate this to @realsway @thehappyhourwhb my Moms and Gma. Knowledge is Power!  And f**k all of my teachers that ever failed me.

As noted by Hip Hop DX, Bibby told Sway Calloway and Heather B during a 2014 visit to Shade 45’s Sway In The Morning that he dropped out of high school in his senior year. The radio hosts have been behind Bibby the entire time he’s been pursuing his diploma and both shared glowing words towards him via a pair of respective Instagram posts.

Check out the following pages to see what Sway and Heather B had to say about Lil Bibby’s high school comeup.

Congrats to Lil Bibby!
