Lupe Fiasco to teach rap class at MIT

Heading into the summer, Lupe Fiasco is making the necessary preparations to be able to put out his upcoming album DRILL MUSIC IN ZION.

With the album slated for release on June 24, Lupe has already unveiled the album’s cover art and released its first promotional single “AUTOBOTO” on May 18.

As another presumed aspect of the rollout for his eighth studio album, Lupe Fiasco and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) announced on Friday (May 20) that he will be teaching a rap course as a part of the “Martin Luther King Visiting Professor Program.”

Although the curriculum of his class is currently unclear, Lupe will be on campus in Cambridge for the entire 2022-23 school year while also conducting research and pursuing his art along with teaching.

Lupe explained that he will elaborate further on his role at a later time. However, he has been a prominent artist in hip-hop since the turn of the century — starting his career crafting hits with fellow Chicagoan Kanye West like “Touch the Sky,” and now having a multitude of projects under his belt that contain exquisite storytelling and incredibly skilled rapping.

He will surely offer a seasoned, expansive perspective for his students and give great insight into the industry that he has occupied for the last 20 years.

Lupe’s busy summer has now gotten busier, as he will now be putting together lesson plans while promoting his long-awaited album.
