Yesterday on Facebook, a few Ephs I know passed around a blog post by former Williams professor Marc Lynch, who is now in Washington teaching at George Washington University’s Elliot School of International Affairs.

The post compares the power struggles among various rappers to international relations, and applies various IR theories to the question of how Jay-Z should respond to an attack from The Game. It has inspired widespread praise and thought, as well as an NPR segment this morning. Lynch also wrote a follow-up post today.
