So Solid Crew rapper Asher D won a debate at the prestigious Cambridge University in England - when he argued that rap was better than philosophy.

The 21 SECONDS hitmaker - who recently served an 18-month prison sentence for carrying a loaded gun - argued that rap songs dealt with reality and reached more people than philosophy ever has.

He said, "The stuff I talk about, I have never heard philosophers talk about.

"Teenage pregnancies, drugs, shootings... I have the listener, you do not."

Walters won the vote by 90 votes to 88.
