There’s a new course on jazz and hip-hop coming to New York University this fall, and it’ll be taught by no less an authority than Jonathan Davis, a.k.a. Kamaal Ibn John Fareed, a.k.a. Q-Tip. This is the first foray into teaching for the rapper, producer, DJ, prime mover behind legendary hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest and current artistic director of hip-hop at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.
