The Simpsons philosophy class at Glasgow University definitely sounds like something plenty of folks would be interested in. But will an Outkast course be as popular?
Offered by Armstrong State University in Savannah, Georgia, Dr. Regina Bradley is teaching a class called “Outkast and the Rise of the Hip-Hop South.” According to Aux, the “course will examine how André 3000 and Big Boi’s ‘ideas about the South and southernness seep into other Southern writers,’ as well as put the duo’s music into the context of contemporary forms of political express such as the #BlackLivesMatter movement.”
Big Boi, for one, is totally into the idea, saying, “It’s an honor to be studied. I am originally from Savannah, and I remember Armstrong, so that is just super dope.” Dope, indeed.
