UPenn Hedge Fund Manager Interview: "How bout that Gucci Pump?"

Was browsing reddit and saw this post. Not sure if it's a shitpost or a true story but i'd like to believe it's real. I know some of you guys will enjoy this - it's hilarious lol.

So I was having an interview for Penn and it was going well. I showed up 5 minutes early, bonded with my interviewer over options pricing, and talked about some really cool things he'd been doing. Eventually he asks me about what I want to do for fun and we talk about parties and he reminisces about the coolest frats at Penn back in his day. I listen attentively but begin to feel my self drifting off at the sound of a 60 something year old hedge fund manager talking about frats, some of which no longer exist today. Suddenly, he utters something so strange I snap to attention and give him an incredulous, mouth-half-open stare. He repeats himself, "How about that Gucci Pump guy huh? Do you "jam" out to him?". I stutter a kind of affirmation.

He continues, "you know my son in Penn says that he listens to a song that goes Gucci Gang Gucci Gang. I bet that Gucci Pump guy is a real smart feller." I pause for a moment, and reconsider all my life decisions that led to me listening to a relatively successful Penn grad in private equity attempt to emulate a Lil' Pump song. I wait and hope for him to move on. He also waits, and stares at me keenly, waiting for my response on Lil' Pump. I say the only thing that comes to mind, "I heard he went to Harvard." The UPenn grad stares at me, and I can feel his gaze scouring the recesses of my soul. He utters one word, "Eskettit". Of course, he pronounces it "Uh-skets-yit", and follows that up by asking, "Did I pronounce it right?" I confirm that he did so, and the interview proceeds normally, if slightly subdued.

This happened three weeks ago and I dream about it every night. Most Awkward Interview Ever. RIP Penn chances

"Lil Pump," who this guy is referring to, is one of those dumbshit mumble rappers that have been blowing up recently; he dabbles in popping xanax bars and selling drugs.

I had an awkward ass manager in high-school, when I worked at a car shop, that always dabbed at us as we clocked out. You guys know any MD's/Managers/etc. that try to keep up with this kind of stuff as well? Seems like it'd lead to some funny stories.

I prescribe some eyebleach for your accidental exposure:

My mind warps and bends floats the wind count to ten
Meet the twin Andre Ben. welcome to the lion's den
Original skin many men comprehend
I extend myself so you go out and tell a friend
Sin all depends on what you believing in
Faith is what you make it that's the hardest shit since MC Ren
Alien can blend right on in wit' yo' kin
Look again 'cause I swear I spot one every now and then
It's happenin' again wish I could tell you when
Andre this is Andre y'all just gon' have to make amends

An awkward kid from Penn and a HF manager who is awkward, but trying to be friendly at the kids level. I am shocked.

Bonded over option prices. Jesus.
