  • Lil Kim To Speak During Syracuse Course In Her Honor

    English students at Syracuse University are about to be schooled by the pint-sized diva, rap star Lil Kim.

    The multi-platinum rapper will visit Syracuse Wednesday (November 3rd) to address a course about her lyrics and their social significance.

    The accredited course, entitled: "Hip-Hop Eshu: Queen [email protected]#$H 101 - The Life & Times of Lil Kim" examines the cultural impact of Kim’s sexuality in mainstream culture.

    Students analyze Kim’s song lyrics as literary texts and dissect her music videos.

    "I am honored and quite proud that a class is being taught on my sensationalist lyrics, unique style and fashion and leadership role within the hip-hop community," Kim said in a statement. "I look forward to a wonderful day at Syracuse University, meeting and greeting my many fans, as well as the academic community."

    According to the course’s professor, Greg Thomas, the curriculum draws parallels to sex and gender studies.

    “In place of bourgeois literature, and even more bourgeois criticism, there will be rap audio and lyrics, oral history, ethnomusicology, folklore or spoken word, magazine articles, interviews, film and video as well as Black Studies of all kinds,” Thomas’ curricular description for the course reads. “These works will be critically engaged to provide ample understanding of Lil’ Kim’s “Queen Bitch” lyricism [and] her very own work in the musical revolution that is Hip-Hop.”

    Lil Kim’s schedule includes a visit to SU’s "Jabberwocky Caf" with invited students and faculty and a "Meet & Greet" with SU's College of Arts and Sciences Dean Cathryn Newton.

    During a classroom discussion in the Schine Underground, Kim will also speak to invited students, hold a press conference and meet faculty and students of the African-American Students Union.
