Think you're cooler than Mike Posner? Talk about '31 Minutes to Takeoff.'

While most rap stars are busy chasing girls, Posner chased his degree. The burgeoning rapper, whose first single "Cooler Than Me" is heating up the charts this summer, didn't walk away from an education when he scored a record deal and instead led a double life as student by day, pop star by night. All that hard work has paid off for the Duke University grad as his debut album "31 Minutes to Takeoff" lands in stores. (Tuesday)
