Teaching the popular course at Rice University in Houston, Texas alongside Dr. Anthony B. Pinn, Bun who didn’t go to college, was asked by Dr. Pinn to come on board four years ago.
Despite Bunn’s in depth knowledge of the culture, the UGK emcee was hesitant about stepping off the stage and in front of the classroom, but soon obliged when he realized the impact he would have with students.
“That was the one thing that shaped me while teaching this course. It was being in a position to be able to speak directly to the hearts and minds of young America,” Bun said. “This is a private university. It’s not the easiest university to get into and it’s not cheap so everybody in my classroom is making a serious effort to stay informed.”
Class is in session everybody. Peep the interview below
