Rising Memphis producer Tay Keith isn’t in agreement with the preconceived notion of school being uncool in Hip-Hop.

So unlike Kanye West, Tay Keith will not be a college dropout. In fact, on December 15, the producer who just earned his first number one record, is set to walk across the stage of Middle Tennessee State University, receiving a degree in media management.

Keith, who produced “Sicko Mode,” which took over the top spot on the Billboard top 100 songs chart this week, took it to Instagram to remind people that he is, in fact, a student musician.
