Haas Drops MBA Hype Music Video

You can quibble day and night over which top MBA program should be ranked higher. You can also bicker about an MBA program’s ability to pump out top entrepreneurs or investment bankers or consultants. You could even squabble over the aesthetics of your B-school campus. But no longer may you argue which world class MBA program houses the best rappers. It’s UC-Berkeley’s Haas School of Business.

In a hilarious and surprisingly well-edited rap video, two soon-to-be Haas MBA graduates tell why the Haas School is better than your B-school. “Look touchdown from Atlantic to Pacific — UC-Berkeley Haas to be specific,” Anthony “Ace” Patterson begins, donning a t-shirt with the Haas Defining Principles. “Folks back home wanna know how I’m livin’ — 70 degrees in February, guess I’m chillin’.”

Known for his singing and songwriting prowess, it doesn’t take Haas Dean Rich Lyons long to make a cameo. About 43 second to be exact. “To my wifey it’s expensive, she won’t even buy it,” Patterson continues in a Haas remake of rapper Drake’s “The Motto” which features fellow rapper Lil Wayne. “Tryna tell her, ‘top 10, baby!’ Ask Dean Lyons!'” Lyons turns away from his computer flashing a shirt saying “YOHO” (You Only Haas Once) underneath a blazer. Styling. And then the dancing commences.


After a few more rhymes including quips about jacuzzis in Tahoe, Berkeley’s posh restaurant district, the Gourmet Ghetto and making it rain student loans because “I got an MBA, negotiate the deal,” Patterson drops the chorus. “Strugglin’ with FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), y’allready know tho, ‘You Only Haas Once,’ that’s our motto, homie, YOHO,” Patterson raps in front of MBA body doubles decked out in their UC-Berkeley garb.

When it appears the music video can’t get any funnier, Patterson passes the mic to fellow graduating Haas MBA and Korean rapper, Bomi Kim. “Imagine all the excitement and fear, the moment when you feel like your heart is exploding,” Kim begins flawlessly in her native language. “No matter what we do, we’re confident. We went for it and achieved it because Haas got it.”

And then Kim flexes her writing muscles and gets metaphorical. “I’m like a Long Island Ice Tea at White Horse,” Kim raps with drink in hand at Oakland’s oldest and most famous LGBT bar. “Dangerous and toxic but exciting and exhilarating.”

The video closes with with another round of the “YOHO” chorus and an appearance of a borderline-disturbing dancing Golden Bear. Still, a message has been sent to the elite B-school community around the globe: Haas wants a rap battle. Who will step up next? We’re looking at you, Wharton.
