So why should San Francisco high school students hang tough through chemistry, French and European history classes? 

Among other reasons, because Ludacris says so.

The rapper/actor showed up at Thurgood Marshall High School in S.F. last Friday for a little MTV-sponsored pep talk on the subject of the importance of education. Receive his wisdom over here.

Ludacris flew up from Brazil -- where he's filming the sure-to-be-awesome fifth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise -- to speak in S.F. for MTV's Get Schooled campaign. Turns out the guy not only graduated high school, he studied business in college. Check it out:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
