Diddy talking down to Hootie because he chose to forego a higher education and pursue a life he seems to enjoy is ridiculous. Hootie realistically added years to his earning potential and won't have ungodly student loan debt to answer for. No shame in that. Maybe he'll regret it in ten or twenty years. Maybe not.
There are plenty of baristas and waiters with bullshit BA and BS degrees that don't translate to a damn thing in the real world.
go get a BS in physics, chemistry, or biology and tell me how it isn't hard. I've been there, and it was grueling. Probably 50% of the students that started pre med dropped by year two.
