Is there really such a thing as a "schooled" rapper? An educated rapper? Does the fact that one has walked the aisle of acadamia imply that that person is less street or is that their minds have indeed broadened to beyond the ghettos and to the boardrooms? Some people like the the likes of Puff, who got made game, get playa hated and labeled as sell outs of the game. Does the college grauduate have enuff street cred and swag to pull it off as a true hood rapper *No Will Smith typos* up in the 'Burbs. *Does one's academic backround put them a step ahead in the game or take them back? Is it worth it or is baggage *like a back up singer all stretched out?*

What do y'all think? Are we readyy for a Puff Daddy/Jigga reincarnation with an MBA or a Doctrate? Is it time for that kind of revolution in rap or id it still too fragile *and grown as far as it can go for now*?

Holla!!!

Um...

Kids In The Hall? David Banner? Phonte? 9th Wonder? Talib Kweli? Asher Roth? Roxanne Shante (who has a PHD no less)? Ludacris? Ice Cube? Rah Digga? Common? E-40?

Not to mention all the rappers in SA who have a university education - there aren't as many, but there are a few. I'd say it puts you a step ahead. But this is certainly not a new phenomenon.

Lol. I think I get the point you were trying to make but you should do some more research on your own first. In mentioning Puff you choose a bad example to get your point across. He received a very good education from a catholic school before he went to Howard University. His father was deep in the streets (connected to Harlem's Nicky Barnes like Shyne's pops too) and that covered his street cred for life

These pics are funny though:
