I reference the artist “Large Professor”, when I say “became a Large Professor” because I actually teach at Florida A and M University. I have also taught at Tallahassee Community College. I teach courses in American History, World History and African-American History. I felt it was important to include this into my story because Hip Hop and School have been a part of my life from the beginning. Often hip hop artists highlight their lack of intelligence, or pretend that they are not intelligent and I wanted to make a clear break from this tradition.

On another note, I am one of the only rappers I know of who became a professor before people knew me as an artist. For that reason alone this is a crucial part of my hip hop story.

“Half-a-mil” is a reference to the artist who was part of the hip hop group The Firm. Afterwards Half-A-Mil would go on to drop a solo album and he often collaborated with AZ. There was a point in my life when Half-a-mil was one of my favorite rappers. He was edgy, lyrical and had something to say. He would ultimaltely die before getting the recognition he deserved.

Here are links to a few of my favorite Half-a-mil tracks:

Just a point of clarity for those involved in the contest….Some of the lyrics that are typed here are inaccurate….Fixing those lyrics will certainly help someone get closer to the exact number of references in the song.

***There is no winner yet…so the Contest Continues!

Did your uncle actually produce for the Poor Righteous Teachers?

Yes he did, he produced their first big record “Rock dis Funky Joint” (off of their initial Album, Holy Intellect)

Senators from different states proposed that they should succeed from the United States because of Obama. Obama’s success is the reason why they want to succeed from the United States.
