The next time you and your son are in the great “I don’t need school because I wanna be a rap star” debate…please make them aware that their favorite rapper probably has a college degree or at least been to college. Here is a list of some of hip-hop’s hottest artists and their education acheivements. 🙂
Ludacris: Graduated from Georgia State University with a major in music management.
Chuck D (Public Enemy): Graduated from Adelphi University with a degree in graphic design.
Two Chainz: Attended Alabama State University and played for their basketball team for one year. Transferred to Virginia State for his sophomore year. Not clear whether he graduated from Va. State, but rumor has him graduating from college with a 4.0 average. Whether this is truth or urban legend is hard to determine, but if there must be rumors, this is a good one.
Lil Wayne: Attended University of Houston, where he studied psychology. Currently takes classes online at the University of Phoenix.
Kanye West: Of course the creator of the albums “The College Dropout” “Late Registration” and “Graduation” went to college! He attended Chicago State University (where his mother was Chair of the English Department) and Columbia College in Chicago.
Sean Combs: Attended Howard University.
