ATLANTA (AP) – Atlanta rapper T.I. will soon be adding educator to his resume.
T.I will join hip-hop scholar Dr. Melva K. Williams at Clark Atlanta University this fall to teach the “Business of Trap Music.”
The university said the course will focus on the origin, culture and business of trap music. T.I., also known as Clifford Harris, said he’s excited to work with the HBCU and their “innovative approach” to providing an education “beyond the traditional textbook curriculum.”
He also noted that historically Black colleges were vital in the community “and have managed to withstand even while being some of the most under-resourced institutions.”
