SHOW-ME THE EDUCATION OF JAY Z AND KANYE WEST @ UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI!!!



Serious study or yet another indication that a liberal arts degree is increasingly worthless or something more akin to a vacation for the upper-middle-class.

Check it:

Time Mag Blog: University of Missouri Now Has a Class on Jay Z and Kanye West’s Relationship

Show-me the money quote:

The course is taught through the English department, and the instructor Andrew Hoberek compared the periphrastic rappers to poets in an interview with music blog Consequence of Sound: “I really do think that these guys are warming up to the level of major poets, and not many people think of it in those terms,” he said. ”They’re very much like painters and novelists in the 20th century, moving beyond the confines of the art form’s boundaries.”

Fascinating stuff but it might worth waiting for comparative studies on the booty of Beyoncé vs. Kim Kardashian.

More in a bit . . .

These the two guys who tried to rob a cab at 43rd and Campbell about four hours ago?

Isn't that how you work your way to the top like these guys did. Robbing and sticking people up in one form or another?

The one with the gun was wearing a light grey hoodie, not a tuxedo. Anyway the police were called to the scene and are looking for them.

They are like coked out Tennysons.

Looks like a fluff class to increase Amish GPA at Doofzoo

Does the course offer lessons on how to intimidate people so they don't snitch?

This country needs to give away FREE birth control pills. Especially in the ghettos where taking it should be mandatory starting at age 13.

Five pounds of lips on each one of these porch apes. Worthless for anything....If this is associated with MU, then MU must suck too...

Sounds like a great class to take. Especially since most kids are in debt up to their ears in student loans. Yes sir, Mr. Employer, I have B.S. degree in B.S.

What a fuckin joke.

UCLA no longer requires Shakespeare, Milton, Chaucer, replaced with Gender studies and shit just like this.

While I admit this probably more interesting than most Western Civ subjects, this is pretty ridiculous. Especially at $500 a credit hour.

No doubt, Jay Z and Kanye are an important part of the Western Canon. Of course, these miserable fuckin pukes think a Western Canon is what you use to rob a Church's Chicken with.

What a fuckin joke. $100.00 says every fuckin jock on the Football and Basketball team got a fuckin A.

Heh, heh..., Fuckin A.

Why not just add a business course on selling crack cocaine.

Why not a course on Thuganomics. Or the art of collecting welfare. Alonzo could be a professor in that one.

Now now, 9:26 Bad boy, you should not use the world thug. Richard Sherman says thug is the new word for nigger. Gee how would anyone make that connection? It must be true because Bill Maher picked it up on his show. I am sure this new course at UMKC will help make their students were marketable especially in making license plates and other prison industries. How about too a science course in the physics of shotgun projectiles?

I worry more about the boys in the hood than I do about the boys wearing the white hoods.

Background:

Professor Hoberek....(Dr. Ho to intimates) attempts to lure unwitting students to enroll in his class by pimping the urban hipsters JayZ & Kanye as his decoys. What the students quickly discover to their shock is Dr. Ho, hand on hip, soft lilting voice, discussing the classical poets with nary a reference to his decoys. SNOOZE!
