Personally I find a course on Jay-Z at Georgetown University is a bit “REACHING” because most of his material over the years didn’t push many boundaries socially so I’m not surprised by the criticism the course is getting. Especially considering that it’s mandatory that the students purchase Jay-Z’s book to take the class & Michael Eric Dyson & the school itself most likely receive grants from the publishers for even having the course & carrying the book at the student book store. Any current or former college student will tell you that the biggest hustle with many of the courses you take is in the books you are required to purchase that often times you can’t sell back to the school once the course is over. It’s “Big business” being pushed as academia. A truly smart individual doesn’t need to take a course on Jay-Z to understand ‘the hustle’, but it won’t be me or most smart people I know getting “hustled” into taking this class.
