Lupe Fiasco not only has an LP on the way, but he’s planning to teach a course at MIT as well. Planning to educate others on the rich history of hip-hop, Fiasco announced this special news via Twitter on Monday.
“I been holding this for a while. I’ll put together something more sophisticated later that really captures the nuance and gravity, but for now, I’ll just say it straight and raw: I’m going to teach Rap at @MIT.”
After a user deemed the class “useless,” Fiasco snapped back in a since-deleted tweet.
“Syllabus isn’t built yet, but I’m thinking its fruit to be had in looking at neuromorphic computation through the lens of Rap as a lossless data compression model with a dash of energy efficiency via refining Landauer’s principle applied to cytoarchitectonics. And some rapping….” he said.
Fiasco’s Drill Music In Zion is set to drop on June 24th.
