Earlier Tuesday, it was reported that Jay Harris, a three-star wide receiver committed to Michigan State, gave up football to pursue his dream of becoming a rap star.

There may be a good reason for him wanting to pursue that career sooner than later. reports that Harris was stripped of his scholarship by Michigan State earlier this month after he posted a series of profanity-laced rap videos on YouTube.

Harris raps under the name “Jay DatBull,” and has uploaded nine videos to YouTube.  Harris raps about drugs, women, and homosexuals and almost all of it contains explicit language.

His first single, “DatBull 4 Life,” has surpassed 50,000 views and appears to show Harris smoking marijuana while sitting behind the steering wheel of a car.

“I’ve always had this in the back of my head, but never had the courage to tell my parents that this is what I want to do,” Harris said. “I try to take advantage of every opportunity I get, and for him to like my music and reach out to me, I really appreciated that."

The 5-foot-11, 162-pounder is ranked by ESPN as the state’s 17th-ranked senior and second-best wideout. He scored 13 touchdowns last season on 54 catches for 792 yards. He signed a binding letter of intent in February to attend Michigan State.
