The controversial rapper recently announced his plans to enroll at the HBCU over the weekend at the annual "Soul Bowl" -- a matchup between the two rival universities Jackson State Tigers and Alcorn State Braves.
"I've been coming to Jackson since I was 14, and I love y'all," Boosie begins. "Y'all love my stanky drawers, and I love y'all back. And I just want to tell y'all that y'all always been supportive of me, and it's a big secret--I wasn't going to let it out--but I'm enrolling in Jackson State next semester."
Bystanders in the video were noticeably happy for the "Set It Off" rapper and reacted excitedly, showering him with praise. — It remains unclear what degree the 39-year-old Baton Rouge native plans on pursuing at JSU in the spring semester.
"I'm gonna see how it feels to walk around the campus," Boosie continued. "Talk to girls with a book sack on! I wanna feel normal. I miss that part of my life! So I wanna enroll and be able to walk down the thang and go to class and try my brain — cause I still have matter up there that needs to be explored!"
His plans to pursue a higher education come almost eight years after completing the Angola State Prison GED program, while serving an eight-year prison sentence for conspiracy to smuggle drugs into the prison in 2013.
