Obasi Shaw has just made history. He submitted a rap album for his final thesis at the prestigious Harvard University – and passed with honours. The Album explores racial identity in America and discusses the line between freedom and slavery.
Each track is written from a different character’s perspective, and is really flawless to be honest.
The kid is off to work for Google next year, which is shame because he’s not pushing his rap career, but a blessing because hip-hop now has an agent on the inside of the corporate tech world.
