Hip-hop has yet another Ivy League graduate. LL Cool J recently revealed on Instagram early Monday morning (Nov. 27) that he just completed a program at Harvard Business School.

LL posted a photograph of him in a lecture hall raising his hand. “Completed the Business of Entertainment media & sports program @harvardhbs,” the iconic rapper wrote in the caption. “It was a life altering experience. Learning is cool...  #dreamsdemandhustle #dreamsdonthavedeadlines lets go!!!! Ps. The head of the program & my professor @anitaelberse was absolutely gangster. #ironsharpensiron.”

According to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee, he accepted his certificate from Harvard’s Entertainment Media and Sports Program. The course reportedly teaches students how to launch and manage creative products and portfolios, according to the description on the Harvard website.

LL Cool J’s huge milestone comes shortly after Swizz Beatz graduated from the university’s business school with knowledge in entrepreneurship and managerial skills.
