Grammy award-winning artist, Lupe Fiasco, is widely considered one of the greatest lyricists of his generation, and now he is adding more feathers to his hat of excellence, as he lands a professorship at MIT, to instruct a rap class.
According to MIT’s website, the opportunity came through the school’s MLK Visiting Professor Program, which was created to increase minority scholar participation.
The rapper and community advocate, Lupe Fiasco joins two new teachers participating in the 2022-2023 program including theater teacher Eunice Ferreira and documentary filmmaker Louis Massiah.
It won’t be the first time the “Kick, Push‘” rapper has been involved with the university as he spent the 2020-21 school year there as a Visiting Artist. The rapper, whose real name is Wasalu Jaco, recently announced a forthcoming album titled ‘Drill Music in Zion,’ to be released on June 24th, 2022.
