Look out Dr. Dre, there’s a new Hip-Hop doctor out in the West Coast, and he’s got the degree to prove it.
According to TMZ, E-40 can now call himself Dr. Fonzarelli. The Hip-Hop legend was blessed with an honorary doctorate degree by Grambling State University Friday (May 12). Having attended the school as an undergrad back in the 1980’s, E-40 made the most of his moment and during the commencement ceremony in Louisiana, gave the graduating class some gems like a true OG and kept it moving onto his next hustle.
As we reported, earlier this year he donated $100K to the HBCU’s music department to help install a recording studio so students could follow their dreams as he did. GSU surprised him by naming it the Earl “E-40” Stevens Sound Recording studio.
For those who don’t know, 40 was a Grambling Tiger in 1986 … before he became the hip hop mogul we know today.
Whether he takes the degree and opens up a private practice is anyone’s guess, but best believe if he did he’d have a gang of fans looking to be diagnosed by Dr. E-Bonics. We know we would. Of course we’d get a second opinion right after, but still.
