Harvard Opts For Tyga Despite Protests; Trinidad James Must Have Been Unavailable

The combination of Lil' Wayne's seizures last month and the uproar over Tyga's sexist lyrics have resulted in a rough start to the year for Young Money Records. However, according to All Hip-Hop, Harvard elected to continue with his scheduled performance at Yardfest despite protests over his misogynistic lyrics.

The rapper will perform today as originally scheduled, even though there was a 2,000 person petition in circulation against his inclusion in the annual event.

The YMCMB rapper’s detractors said his songs contained “violently misogynistic lyrics.”

The Harvard Concert Commission and College Events Board made the ultimate decision to keep Tyga.

It's peculiar that so recently after Harvard's Henry Louis Gates had J. Cole lecturing about the value of rap in the music community, the campus would decide to court such a controversial artist to perform in front of its students. Either Harvard is trying to be ironic or Trinidad James  was out of pocket. Do you, Harvard. Fox News is going to eat this up.
