Albany-- Rapper and best-selling author, Chuck D says there's no such thing as a "collegiate thug."

The star, best known for his work with 80's rap group Public Enemy, told ASU students to seek intelligence over attitude and find role models in their community.

 Chuck D says, "People who have graduated from the school, people in neighborhood businesses that came from similar backgrounds-- you have to ask real people for advice, you can't ask images."

Chuck D, who graduated with honors from Adelphi University, hosted a segment on Fox News Channel and published the best-selling autobiography, Fight the Power .
