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 theMichigan 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.

In what can only be described as a major surprise, not to mention a particularly unique twist, Harris had his scholarship to Michigan State rescinded after he posted the explicit rap video you see above to YouTube. In the course of a 3:26 span, Harris rhymes about having sex, smoking illegal drugs and being awesome at life in general.

Naturally, all of these are particularly normal, even banal tropes for most rappers, yet they aren’t particularly attractive to the NCAA. In fact, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Michigan State decided to pull its scholarship from Harris after it saw his music video for “DatBull 4 Life” (Harris raps under the stage name “Jay DatBull”), which kicks off with a massive puff on a substance which looks an awful lot like a substance which is firmly on the government’s list of illegal narcotics.
