In other news it's know secret that Hip Hop has been the source for education courses for years. From 2Pac‘s music being analyzed at the University of Washington to The Notorious B.I.G.‘s “Ten Crack Commandments” being taught as an online business class to Nas becoming the inspiration for a Harvard University fellowship.
However, a Florida teacher may have taken rap music’s educational value a little too far. An eighth grade English class at the Charter Schools of Boynton Beach was assigned to read the uncensored version of Lil Wayne’s “6 Foot 7 Foot.” You gotta wonder what the teacher thinking, right?
According to the news, the students were instructed to find examples of figurative language in the song, but rightfully so the explicit lyrics upset most of the parents.
When the school was notified, the administration claims the assignment was not approved. Headmaster Wayne Owens released a statement to the local news Channel 5 saying the students were having trouble understanding literary devices, and the teacher decided to use “colloquial material” as a way to help the students grasp the concepts.
At that same token Owens said the assignment was “inappropriate” and the teacher was suspended for three days.
Finally here's in an update on the George Zimmerman Celebrity Boxing match.

Celeb boxing promoter Damon Feldman, is behind the match that’s supposed to go down in March. Feldman has 55 celebrity boxing matches under his belt, all via his Celebrity Boxing Federation (CBF) Feldman told AllHipHop.com, “If anyone still wants the shot at it, email email@example.com.”
