Young Money rapper Drake's addictive "Y.O.L.O (You Only Live Once)" catchphrase has reportedly made its way onto select college applications for prospective students to answer.
According to reports, students hoping to attend a Boston university have to weigh-in on the expression.
Even with a high school-level education, Drake still schooled universities by appearing in the essay question for a college application. Tufts University in Boston asked prospective students to craft their best 250 to 300 words for what Drizzy's favorite acronym Y.O.L.O. means to them. (VIBE)
An excerpt from the exam's Y.O.L.O. question has already started to circulate online.
"The ancient Romans started it when they coined the phrase "Carpe diem." Jonathan Larson proclaimed "No day but today!" and most recently, Drake explained You Only Live Once (YOLO). Have you ever seized the day? Lived like there was no tomorrow? Or perhaps you plan to shout YOLO while jumping into something in the future. What does #YOLO mean to you?" (VIBE)
Late last year, Drizzy caught feelings when he noticed various retail spots making profits off his catchy expression.
It's true -- you only do live once, and in this lifetime, Drake wants a check for all that YOLO merchandise. The Canadian teardrop shed the holiday spirit on Christmas Eve in favor of a capitalist one, uploading two photos to Instagram of YOLO clothing and demanding that someone cut him a check. The photos were taken in a Walgreens and a Macy's, meaning that Drake is either a cheap and lazy Christmas shopper like the rest of us or he has a roving team of YOLO spies policing drug and department stores across the country (stop snitching!).

Recently, Drizzy boasted about his "Started From the Bottom" song title appearing on a Taco Bell sauce packet
"Mama we made it!!!" Drake happily shared on Instagram today. The rapper was over the moon after seeing a Taco Bell hot sauce packet featuring the phrase "Started From The Bottom Now We Here," which he famously raps on his single "Started From The Bottom." He may be eating south of the border, but per Instagram, it seems that Drake has been hanging out in Las Vegas. (RapFix)
