Lupe Fiasco is adding “professor” to his resume. He announced the good news on Twitter.
“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],” Lupe said. MIT Arts co-signed and elaborated on Lupe’s news with, “MIT’s MLK Visiting Professor Program has announced their 2022-23 appointments! Three have expertise in the arts & humanities: associate professor of theater Eunice Ferreira, Grammy-award winning rapper @LupeFiasco & documentary filmmaker Louis Massiah. Congrats all!”
Lupe also announced that his next album, “Drill Music in Zion,” will drop on June 24th.
