So many people can say they are bilingual now…

Professor Regina Bradley gets that her students receive a lot of their information about politics and trends from music. Now, Bradley is gearing up to offer a course dedicated to analyzing the iconic ATL music group, OutKast.

We are definitely feeling this.. Yes, darling, I am fluent in English and OutKast.

Wielding a Ph.D. in African-American Literature as well as a heavy background in pop culture, Bradley will be using OutKast’s music, as well as other hip-hop records, to look at how the artists used their platform for political expression.

Bradley explains that OutKast’s work holds just as much validity as the more “classical” literary works.

Kind of makes you think of a bunch of white guys with those funny wigs and their feather pens, right?

Bradley claims, “OutKast is more than deserving of a close analysis, especially in thinking about contemporary southernness because they were many folks’ first introduction to the possibility of southern rappers.”

Yass, Regina! Please do Andre and Big Boi some justice!

Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview

Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
