Q-Tip to teach College course at NYU

Rapper Q-tip will bring his musical knowledge and experience in the entertainment business to students at New York University. 

The Tribe Called Quest founding group member has been tapped to teach a class at NYU's Clive Davis Institute Of Recorded Music In The Tisch School of the Arts.

The new class will focus on the historical links between hip-hop and Jazz music. 

The rapper has teamed with journalist Ashley Kahn for the course, which will comprise seven classes with Q-Tip as the teacher. 

“I couldn’t be more excited to share with the students what I know and I look forward to them also teaching me," Q-Top said. "Teaching is an exchange of sharing and receiving for all involved.”

Artists like The Last Poets, Stetsasonic, A Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy, The Roots, Lauryn Hill, and Kendrick Lamar will be dissected during the course.
