Grammy winning producer 9th Wonder is set to teach a Hip Hop history class at Harvard University soon. During his time at Harvard, in addition to teaching, he'll be conducting a research project called "These Are The Breaks", in which he will examine the original sampled on his ten favorite hip hop albums.
9th recently shared his opinions on historically black colleges not teaching Hip Hop classes.
"It's incredible to me that they don't study Hip Hop at every Black College," said 9th Wonder. "I think that it's just a sign of the times, man. It happened with Jazz. Jazz was studied somewhere else first. African-American studies was studied somewhere else first. At some point we have to break that cycle. There are some: Florida A&M, North Carolina A&T State University. And then you have some that don't want that because they think that we're gonna teach about what happened on BET last night."
