I always thought Ice Cube was a G... :D

Doesn't Immortal Technique have a history degree or something? I also bet there's plenty of underground rappers that graduated college.
no he got kicked out of school because one of the kids called him a racial slur and he beat the kid badly.

"maybe he played football and got a business degree"
Someone is smart. Yes, he's 100% correct. Wale attended and got a business degree at the community college, and transfered to the bigger school to play football.


As for the other ones being questioned;

*Plies and I both attended the 2004 Tampa Indie Music Conference, and stayed on the same hotel floor, and was going over our backgrounds a late night in the lobby waiting our turn to use the hotel's microwave to warm up some food. He did attend college at USF trying for a business degree, but dropped out after his freshmen year, to get a real job and get into music with his brother. So I know for SURE he didn't graduate.

*And at the 2005 Atlantis Music Conference in Atlanta that I attended. Ludacris' bio paragraph in the program stated he was a 4-year graduate from Georgia State, with a radio communications degree, in which he used to get a radio personality job. So that was my source.

*Ice Cube actually has a registered architects' license in the state of California, in 1987. I'm a civil engineer and work with many architects on my projects from different states; and you cannot apply for your architect's F.E. exam until you have graduated from an accredited university. So I know for a fact he's got an architecture degree.

------------

Just like alot of others here have been co-signing for me...there are many-many other rappers that attended college, but NEVER graduated. That's why their not on my list. I had started this post in hopes more people could bring documented proof to help me make the list bigger.

Common went to Florida A&M but dropped out.
I'm pretty sure Common flunked out.

I think David Banner also attended the University of Maryland but never completed the MBA program.

Phonte has a degree in English not History.
On an interview he was asked if he would ever consider teaching english,he said he would rather write then teach.
