On Tuesday, the NYU Program Board announced that rapper Future would headline its Violet 100 Concert, which coincides with NYU’s annual Spirit Week.
Students took to Twitter to express their excitement for the concert, which will take place on Feb. 24 at Terminal 5. The concert will only be open to NYU students, with tickets costing $20.

Other students expressed this opportunity as a “dream come true” and also, “lit.”

The tuition is $70k a year, but for another $20 you can go to a dope concert.

However, some students expressed concern about maintaining their street cred.

And one student was even a little peeved by NYU’s choice.
Wow, NYU’s hosting a Future concert TOO BAD I DON’T LISTEN TO RAP

Maybe she should take advice from this almost too reasonably worded tweet.
? I don’t listen to him, but Future is performing at NYU and I wouldn’t mind going

Regardless of what you decide to do, your NYU ID doubles as exclusive access. Go Violets.
