Yo Gotti has officially enrolled in a business course at UCLA, as the Memphis rapper has begun his studies following his tour.
Yo Gotti is going from stages to schoolwork. The Memphis rapper has enrolled in a business course at the Anderson School of Management at UCLA.
The 42-year-old emcee, who is in a relationship with fellow rapper-entrepreneur Rev. Run’s daughter, Angela Simmons, posted a picture of himself on the Los Angeles campus to his Instagram.
“Still learning…,” captioned the hip-hop artist, whose real name is Mario Sentell Giden Mims.
The course, “Corporate Valuation” will teach students about the various aspects of business, including IPOs, mergers and acquisitions, and private firms for investments. According to the class description, students will meet weekly in the three-hour lecture to ” explore how real options affect investment decisions and how they can be identified and valued.” With Yo Gotti bringing his real-life business experiences and knowledge to the classroom, students will get a post-graduate-level course as he immerses himself in it with attendees. The entertainer-turned-entrepreneur is well-versed not only in the studio but also in the industry’s business side, discovering early on in his career the importance of understanding contracts.
Yo Gotti not only owns his own record label, Collective Music Group (CMG), but he also co-owns D.C. United, a soccer club based in the nation’s capital. His endeavors also expanded to the food industry and real estate. He is also known for his money moves, making headlines in August about staying away from private flying, instead flying first-class to save the extra cash.
However, despite this pursuit of expanding his entrepreneurial success, Yo Gotti is still giving the music to his fans. The rapper just finished his Gangsta Art Tour with fellow Memphis rappers such as GloRilla and MoneyBagg Yo, just in time to begin his studies. With this new accomplishment underway, the record executive is bringing his street smarts to the university as he begins learning in the traditional form.
