Who Says You Can’t Graduate At 39? From The Bronx To Harvard, “Swizz Beats” Did That!

Swizz Beats (39) just graduated from Harvard Business School! Yes, he did it!

Kassem Dean isn’t a name you would recognise in a snap but Swizz Beats in one you would recall either as a recording artist, a rapper or the famous Alicia Keys’ husband. It seems like a trend for music artist that they complete their education.

We witnessed how Drake completed his High School Diploma at 25 now, 39-year-old Kassem Dean just finished Harvard Business School. The music world, social media couldn’t hold back their congratulatory messages, posts, retweets or reposts.

Alicia Keys supported her husband by sharing his accomplishment on Instagram with her fans. She is happy and “can’t stop looking at him in amazement”!


“Today was a HUGE accomplishment!! Graduating from Harvard Business School is not only your triumph, it belongs to all of us!! Your family, your friends and everyone that vibes with you!! It reminds us ALL that there is no ceiling to our greatness!! And it’s up to us how far we want to go!!!!! From the Bronx to Harvard baby!!!!!!!! Just how you say it β€œsky is not the limit it’s JUST the view”
WOW!!!!! We’re so proud of you!! More than words can EVER say!!!! ??? Shinnnnnneeeeee 4EVER!!!!!!!!!!!?????” she writes.


On the other hand, Swizz Beats plans to continue studying and get his Doctorate. He didn’t fail to share his feelings on his Instagram page as well.
