As tuition rises daily at our nation’s universities, parents everywhere are working diligently with their kids and praying for scholarships. But, what if your child got a full ride to college and chose a rap career over the scholarship? (Lady, put your belt down and keep reading!)
Jay Harris also known as Jay DatBull played football for Downingtown High School East in Exton, Pennsylvania. He was a phenomenal receiver for his high school and to his surprise, received a full-ride to Michigan State University. He told everyone via a YouTube video how he was so happy to represent the Spartans, but then he made, what many may perceive as a foolish choice. He posted a blunt smokin’, expletive laden, rap video called “Datbull 4 Life”about some bull that cost him the golden ticket to MSU.
Once the university got a gander of what they were accepting into their football program and student body, they immediately rescinded their offer and wished him luck. Now his parents may be upset, but he isn’t. According to the Huffington Post, Harris was scared to tell his parents, but he would much rather pursue a rap career than go to MSU. He told the Inquirer that a producer, M.Stacks, would be working with him over the summer, but Stacks’ manager said there could be nothing further from the truth.
