Fans of Hip Hop music and culture, are excited about the new degree being offered at the University of Arizona. The announcement of a new Hip Hop minor degree was unveiled today. This will be the first of its kind in the nation….and yes you heard this right.
The news anchors at CNN seemed to cringe at the thought of this new option for college students. However, with an evolving culture in music, this may be well-overdue. While, I’m not yet sure what this will do for someone’s career, let’s face it, this is a billion dollar industry (if not more).
It is actually funny to think that Arizona would be the first to offer this type of course. This would seem more appropriate at a hip institution, like in the state of New York! But good for them for taking the plunge.
Seriously, I can’t make this stuff up!
