Lil B and Miami discuss admissions on Twitter

Brandon McCartney -- also known as Lil B or The BasedGod, a rapper and social media personality in Berkeley, CA -- is considering Miami as he starts his college search. The performer is seeking programs in science, biology and neuroscience.

McCartney tweeted on Dec. 7, 2017 that he wants to "offer more to the American people and globally as well as animals," though he noted that he had never completed high school. Miami's official Twitter account replied, offering a campus tour and emphasizing its "wonderful programs in the sciences."

Like he did with Indiana University, Penn State, University of Wisconsin Madison and several other schools, McCartney replied with interest: "Amazing will follow up - Lil B."

Lil B did not respond for comment.
