The college North Carolina A&T in Greensboro, NC has removed its name from a concert headlined by Gucci Mane. It was originally approved as part of their annual homecoming festivities. Pressure and protests from members of student government organizations have resulted in the institution choosing not to associate themselves with the event.  The concert, which also features performances by OJ Da Juiceman, Fabolous, Trey Songz and Keri Hilson is scheduled for Oct. 31.  Gucci Mane’s alleged gang ties and his violent lyrics are at the reasons behind the dispute.  Over 6,000 tickets have already been sold  and Gucci will still be allowed to perform.  Here is a quote from A&T’s Chancellor Martin:

“The headliners booked for our student concert have generated dissonance among our student leaders and our constituents. “This dissonance has provoked internal discussion and policy reviews which are both necessary and welcomed and which will undoubtedly make us better as a university community.”
