Wouldn't be my choice. I'da stuck out the ride, taken some music classes, maybe some writing courses, and worked on my shit in private until I was out. But I can at least respect the decision, quality of content not withstanding.
And I'm fine with the University's line on something like this.
I don't even think it was an ultimatum if you watched his "music videos." Dude's straight up smoking blunts in them. They pulled his scholarship, which I have no problem with. You'd have to be a world class moron to "pursue rap" over a scholarship, writing raps isn't exactly a thermonuclear energy thesis or something.

cuz I don't believe someone can be that stupid. You can always pursue a rap career on the side.

He probably just said that bs to the media to save face.

Now I'm not sayin this guy isn't fkin stupid. But from that snippet I heard on the radio interview he's not bad beyond hope. He has a good voice and presence just needs a ghostwriter cuz his lyrics and flow are terrible. Thing is these rappers are a dime a dozen but maybe this story can be the gimmick to get him a few singles aired

Dude is a dumbf*ck. "Let me turn down a FREE education to pursue a career in something every dumbass in the ghetto thinks he's good at."
