News: Georgetown University Offers A Jay-Z Class
On a lyrical level, fans and foes have studied Jay-Z. He even picked apart his rhymes himself with his book Decoded.
Jay-z has now became the subject of a college course. Thanks to author and professor Michael Eric Dyson, students at Georgetown University can now pine over the lyrics and life of Sean Corey Carter.
Beginning this semester, Dyson offered a course called the "Sociology of Hip Hop: Jay-Z." The class focuses on any and all social issues, including sexuality, capitalism, racial and gender identity and economic inequality.
The professor tells Fox News, the Brooklyn rapper is an appropriate subject because “I think he's an icon of American excellence." In the class, Dyson covers topics like Hova's Grammy wins, his marriage to Beyoncé and his musical collaborations with Kanye West.
What a nice Birthday present also, he just turned 42 and Beyonce is about to deliver his first child.
