While some presidents leave all kinds of children behind, Jim Jones rewards academia. Case in point: Capo's official poetry contest. We're not completely confident that he isn't recruiting ghostwriters for "We Fly High, Pt. 2: Landscape with the Fall of Icarus," but the Capo is giving a freshman year book stipend, a summer Dipset internship, and countless opportunities to learn proper push-up form to some gifted young poet. The competition, co-sponsored by the Entertainers 4 Education Alliance, will select a winner from six finalists tonight in Harlem. Runners-up get a signed Jim Jones poster and possibly a hug. We'll keep you posted.
