Canada’s new governor general: thinker, educator, rapper
Move over, Drake. There’s a new guy about to steal the gangsta spotlight in Canada, and he just happens to be our new governor general-in-waiting, David Johnston. Currently president of the University of Waterloo, Johnston declared last week that he’d be taking over from Michaëlle Jean, but we’re more excited to discover, via the National Post, this rap video where the in-coming GG makes a cameo appearance. Produced by Waterloo students, the video, which is a shout-out to the university’s debauchery and intellectual prowess, went viral around campus in 2008. We recommend that Waterloo forget high school recruitment visits, and just send around this video to attract applicants next year.
