I know its kind of old news and all, but I still want to know what your guys' thoughts were about it. Sorry if this thread’s already been made. For those who don’t know who I’m talking about look him up on YouTube, JayDatBull — DatBull 4 Life

Risky as fuck. Millions of ppl rap but very few make a good and long career out of it. I wish him well, may he excel and grow with his music. But personally I would have chosen the Scholarship. In the end it might have helped him at least financially establish his rap career

I think somebody already posted this here a month or so ago. Anyway, I don’t think he made the brightest decision, but then again, maybe it was right for him.

I read one article that said Michigan backed out due to the content in his raps, and because he needed a minimum 1.8 GPA to get in and he had a 1.7 or some shit

yep ^

he WANTED to play football but once the coaches and AD at Michigan St. saw his videos and learned me smokes weed/etc from hearing his raps they asked him to voluntarily de-commit, instead of revoking his scholarship straight up
