The seven-class schedule will cover artists like Public Enemy, the Roots, Lauryn Hill, and Kendrick Lamar. Students will also receive “in-class and out-of-class assignments under Q-Tip’s mentorship” that focus on performance, composition, and production. “I couldn’t be more excited to share with the students what I know and I look forward to them also teaching me,” Q-Tip said in a press release. “Teaching is an exchange of sharing and receiving for all involved.”
