Malcolm Abbott’s parents may be embroiled in what some are calling the biggest college scam in history but he isn’t worried. On Wednesday, the self-proclaimed rapper smoked a blunt while defending his parents’ involvement in the university admissions scandal.
“They’re blowing this whole thing out of proportion,” he told New York Post journalists outside of his parent’s Park Avenue apartment, adding, “I believe everyone has a right to go to college, man.”
He went on to say that his mom and dad “got roped into [this by] some guy who fucking cheated them.”
Malcom’s dad is Gregory Abbott, founder of International Dispensing Corp. He and wife Marcia are being accused of giving William “Rick” Singer, the man behind the entire operation, $50,000 and $75,000 in bribes to boost their daughter’s standardized test scores. According to reports, they paid the test proctors to raise her SAT scores from the mid-600s to a perfect 800 and her ACT score from 23 to 35 out of 36.
It’s a shame they didn’t do the same for “Billa” (that’s Malcom’s rap alias). After admitting he never went to college, the Abbott’s ponytail-sporting son put in a shameless plug for his 2018 album, telling reporters, “Check out my CD, ‘Cheese and Crackers.'”
The five-track EP features deep lyrics about Malcolm’s life, like how he “grew up fucked up on 5th Avenue.” And in the feature track titled “If I Lost My Money,” Malcolm raps “I’d be asking everyone around where the fuck my money went.”
He should really be asking his parents, who are out on $500,000, that question. Just a hunch, but we’re thinking it went to bribing his sister’s way into college…
