Atlanta Native Scores A with Rap Thesis at Harvard University

Stone Mountian native Obasi Shaw made history when he scored high honors after submitting a conscious rap album as his final thesis at Harvard University. Shaw, an aspiring lyricist, was inspired when his mother made the suggestion that he turn his thesis into song. He spent one year writing the lyrics to the album, called Liminal Minds, which combines middle english poetry with the exploration of racial identity in modern day America. So far Shaw's project, Liminal Minds, has thousands of plays on Soundcloud.
