Armstrong State University is going to offer a class about OutKast duo of Andre 3000 And Big Boi.
The course, OutKast and the Rise of the Hip-Hop South, devoted to the Southern rappers Andre 3000 and Big Boi will be taught by Dr Regina Bradley, a fellow at Harvard University’s Hiphop Archive & Research Institute.
“My areas of interest are African-American literature and popular culture,” said Bradley told Savannah Now. “I try to find ways to connect those. Often, students get most of their information, their outlook from how they engage in popular culture,” Dr Bradley says.
The course is intended for a diverse group of enrollees, including ‘the folks who aren’t familiar with hip-hop at all’.
Big Boi, Andre 3000‘s partner in OutKast duo expressed his delight about the course in a Facebook post. “I am originally from Savannah, and I remember Armstrong, so that is just super dope,” he wrote.
Unfortunately, there are quite a few people, who do no share Big Boi’s enthusiasm and are not ready to understand that contemporary African-American culture is continuing to develop and is more than worthy being taught at a University.
