Michigan State football signee Jay Harris walks away from scholarship for rap career

As a signee for a major Division I football program, Jay Harris was no slouch on the field. A standout wide receiver for Exton (Pa.) Downington East High, Harris was expected to contribute for the Michigan State Spartans in some capacity as a freshman. Now he won’t even be on the team, because he decided to follow another dream.

Before you click play on the video directly below, be forewarned: It contains explicit lyrics and some adult themes.

I think that will turn out to be a bad desicion for him. He is not a very good rapper.

Re: Michigan State football signee Jay Harris walks away from scholarship for rap career

At first I thought, "What are you thinking?", but then I saw the scholarship was rescinded by MSU after they saw the video and then called a "mutual decision". Good decision by the university, guy has "Titus Young" written all over him.

Don't see the comparison between him & Will Smith either. Smith was a 'bubble gum' rapper and had some acting ability, which appealed to a huge segment of the junior high school crowd and later blossomed into a career, wherein this guy is more of the hardcore genre.

I guess it was his way of telling his parents he didn't want to go to college & get some publicity to 'launch' his career, :shrug:.
