Finally There's a College Course on Kanye West

Kanye 2020 by merimeaux

We all know Kanye is a genius, he's made that very clear to the rest of us. But up until now there has never been a chance to really study the most brilliant man in show business the way you might study Shakespeare or Picasso. Luckily, St. Louis's Washington University is here to correct that with their course "Politics of Kanye West: Black Genius and Sonic Aesthetics."

Sure, some naysayers might criticize such a course offering, but aren't all geniuses misuderstood in their lifetime? Anyway, according to the course's professor, Dr. Jeffrey McCune, the course isn't really about Kanye himself anyway, but "good way to get students to connect issues of politics, race, gender, sexuality and culture.” It seems that as always, Kanye seems to be lagging behind in the progress Beyonce has already made -then again, I don't think she's ever actually been a professor. No word on when he plans on teaching a course on himself.

You can read more about the class, and the huge waiting list, on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
