  1. Interesting way to engage students, but I think his media figure and what he came up to be in the present (successful) considering of what he describes in his past songs may make the dream of those who made him true. The dream associating all of this “pimping” with Black culture and further forging stereotypes. That is just another bad side of the coin, when sociology in institutions claims that it is shifting the students from a consumerist behavior into more attentive consumers.. I think it is a wheel within the wheel. This claim is just a deviation, they want them to graduate subconsciously linking race with socio-economic prejudice..
