Focusing on the Andrè 3000 and Big Boi’s “ideas about the South and southernness.”
School just got a whole lot more interesting.
Armstrong State University in Georgia will be teaching a course dedicated to the subject of Andrè 3000 and Big Boi. Taught by professor Regina Bradley, the class will focus on the artist’s “ideas about the South and southernness,” allowing students to to listen and analyze Outkast’s albums and examine contemporary movements and how hip-hop can be used for political expression.
The course, which will be called “OutKast and the Rise of the Hip-Hop South,” will be available this forthcoming Spring 2017 semester and counts as an upper-level English class.
