Has your Business Management undergrad course got you feeling underwhelmed? Do your lectures feel like they’re dragging on Forever? Forever ever? Forever ever?

Well this University in Savannah, Georgia is offering prospective students the opportunity of studying a course on legendary rap duo OutKast “…and the Rise of the Hip-Hop South”.

The class is being offered at Armstrong State University taught by Languages, Literature and Philosophy professor Regina Bradley. The Discography of hip-hop duo, Andre 3000 and Savannah’s own Big Boi, will be the basis of study as well as a focus on the pair’s “ideas about the South and southernness seep into other Southern writers. Professor Bradley PhD goes on to add “throughout the course, students will listen to and analyse OutKast’s albums as well as others in the genre and will examine contemporary movements like Black Lives Matter and how hip-hop can be used for political expression.”

Bradley comments further to highlight she wants the course — which is full — to be inviting and informative for everyone who signed up.

“For the folks who are just as in love with Outkast as I am, I also want them to feel like they can contribute to the class — that’s particularly important,” Bradley said. “I also don’t want to overlook or shun the folks who aren’t familiar with hip-hop at all. I’m pretty sure I have a couple of folks in there who have no clue who Outkast is or don’t listen to hip-hop at all, which is why they’re there — they want to learn something different.”
