Jay-Z Lyrics Being Taught At Georgetown University Course

December 4, 2011 · Posted in news, Videos · 12 Comments 

Interesting. Professor Michael Eric Dyson of Georgetown University is using Jay-Z lyrics to teach students about race, gender and poverty. The Professor analyzes Jay’s rags-to-riches career when talking about social inequality. The course has generated controversy as critics of Dyson believe that Sean Carter’s lyrics have no place in an educational institution like Georgetown. From the last 3 seconds of the clip, apparently Gucci Mane is also being taught at the university.

Would you pay to sit in Professor Michael Eric Dyson’s class?

    We have classes about hip hop here at Indiana. Jay-Z’s lyrics would be a perfect direct source for all those mentioned topics.

    @Royal Swagness,

    It’s not like they are memorizing lyrics and being tested on them. Lyrics could definitely be used as primary sources of a culture.. just like we look at newspapers from different eras

    This is great. Only I fear this is a step further in the whiteification of rap music.
