Professor Bun B?

Posted By on Wed, Jun 23, 2010 at 1:40 PM

Being a professor isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Keeping office hours, distributing a syllabus, grading papers and advising students is a gig most people would pass on but one rap icon is taking a stab at it.

Bun B, one half of the legendary Southern rap duo UGK, is going from the recording studio to the classroom soon. The rapper is to be teaching a course at Rice University in Houston on hip hop and religion. The class starts next spring and Bun is looking forward to all the opportunity. Even joking that he may reward students trying to slip him a demo who have perfect attendance by listening to their music.

For students expecting the class to be a cake walk, they may be rudely surprised at how serious the rapper is taking his new duties.

Here's part of the UStream he did with XXL Magazine, his new album, Trill O.G., comes out August 3rd.
