Questlove to Co-Teach Course at NYU

Add “professor” to Questlove’s extensive resumé. The Roots leader will be co-teaching a “Classic Albums” course with Universal Music Enterprises vice president of A&R Harry Weinger. The two-credit class will feature lessons on albums like Aretha Franklin’s Lady Soul and Led Zeppelin‘s IV and Paul’s Boutique from the Beastie Boys. An NPR blog post inspired the idea for the course, when an intern’s review of Public Enemy’s It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back particularly irked Questlove, who responded on Twitter.
