After 15 years of kicking knowledge Nas is finally looking to get his GED. Saddled with $50,000 in monthly alimony payments, the King of Queens might be padding his resume for the job market but how just how helpful is an education to a rapper?

Degree in Economics and International Business from the University of Florida

2. Young MC

Degree in Economics from the University of Southern California
