The ridiculous Jay-Z hero-worship has gone that one step further. USA Today reports that “Professor” Michael Eric Dyson who teaches at Georgetown University in the US, has offered a course titled the ‘Sociology of Hip-Hop: Jay Z’. According to the Mad Professor, his class confronts topics present in any sociology course: racial and gender identity, sexuality, capitalism and economic inequality. “It just happens to have an interesting object of engagement in Jay-Z — and what better way to meet people where they […]
Via Roc Nation And so the Jay-Z hero worship continues… *rolls eyes* GQ Magazine for some reason has crowned Jay-Z “Man of The Year” along with some other randoms. The pointless annual “Men Of The Year” issue will be available to skim through on the 22nd November.
