Pusha T Gives Lecture at Harvard Business School
Pusha T has gone from moving weight to moving minds with his music in his nearly twenty year career. Now, the G.O.O.D. Music president is educating the masses at the highest level. While in Boston, MA on a Darkest Before Dawn Tour stop yesterday (March 31), King Push hosted a lecture at Harvard University's Business School.
Pusha talked about his role in the hip-hop world and his view of rap as it stands today in a 45-minute lecture at Harvard's Yenching Auditorium. The crimson's campus was buzzing with the news of Push's appearance and fans of the "Untouchable" MC spread the news on social media like wildfire. Pusha was just as excited to be there, even posting on Instagram that he was shocked by a Harvard professor reciting his material to him.
“I feel like it’s my job and my duty to help uplift the new creatives coming in,” Push was quoted as saying in the lecture.
Push joins the list of hip-hop's upper echelon who've walked the Harvard halls and spoke to students. Last year, Chicago rapper Chance The Rapper held a similar lecture at the world famous college and before him, J. Cole schooled students back in 2013.
Pusha made the college lecture stop a priority before heading up north to Canada for the last few North American date of his tour. Peep the remaining dates on Pusha's tour below.
