This Harvard grad submitted a rap album for his thesis — and totally aced it 

Obasi Shaw just became the first student ever to submit a rap album as a senior thesis in Harvard’s English department.”I was definitely very shocked that they accepted it,” the 20-year-old from the Atlanta suburb of Stone Mountain, Ga., told As It Happens host Carol Off. “I expected that I would not get it and I would write a normal thesis and life would go on.”Not only did Shaw find an adviser who was on board with his idea, but the album — called Liminal Minds — has earned him the equivalent of an A-minus grade, guaranteeing he will graduate with honours this week.’If I want to honour the black community that I’m writing about, I want to use their medium — our medium.’
