    This sounds like it would be an awesome class to attend!

    YOUR AN IDIOT IF YOUR WASITING 2 CREDITS AT NYU’S TUTION RATE ON THIS BULLSHIT OF A CLASS !!!

  • Tichaona

    You make us proud Sir!….

  • suckit

    get back to philly and teach them savages

    And people wonder why college grads are fucking idiots these days? Well shit, keep watering down real degrees from real disciplines with bullshit like this, and that’s what you get. Might as well take underwater sculpting while you’re at it… or maybe that class on Beyonce, lol. Trust me, what you’ll learn will definitely be applicable to practical situations in life. Definitely

    not.

    What’s even more amusing is that a class like this makes it seem like creating a classic album isn’t something spontaneous and organic, but something that can be taught, and then planned, organized, and executed, when in actuality the artists who perform the latter are virtually destined to NOT create a classic album because they’re trying too hard, thinking too much, and it’s ultimately not organic. It’s not created for the love of music, it’s created to create a classic album, and that’s not authentic.

    There you go ?, just taught your entire course in one (potentially) run-on sentence.

  • PistolPistol

    Roots are the real deal!!!

  • Los

    Tell me why this mans crotch is splitting at the seams.

  • How Wonderful…

    Conrats to ?uest, but How are these course applied to the collegiate curriculum and why are they relevant and how will they help a student in the long run. Imagine someone discussing Illmatic or Enter the 36 Chambers at a job interview or a a carrer workshop even if its in regards to working in the music field. FOH. Meanwhile, teachers in NYC dont even have enough classroom resources to teach at times. Not hating on ?uestlove at all, but i felt the same way when Bun B and 9th Wonder started teaching college courses as well. Just because you are an emcee or producer doesnt make you 100% credible. If these dudes want to help, get some performing arts and instruments into public schools in NYC Chicago, LA and Philadelphia. Stop Fucking around!

  • If only you knew

    All you dudes coming to conclusions on what the class will be about and what will happen in the class get the fuck outta here. Just the fact the ?uestlove is teaching the class is amazing. He has firsthand knowledge and experience so stop hating.

    Man.
    I ain’t hating.
    I’m actually a Roots fan, like for real.
    I’m probably one of the few people that actually bought ‘undun’.
    But what makes him think he’s eligible to teach a course on classic albums…
    When he hasn’t dropped a classic himself!
    “Things Fall Apart” is a good 4, teetering on 4.5. Same for “Illadelph Halflife”. But I don’t think The Roots have or will ever make a classic. And I love The Roots. Redman is probably my personal favorite rapper of all time, but I don’t think “Muddy Waters” is a classic either (again, 4-4.5).

  • Los

    No need to “come to conclusions” about what the class will be about, they said it in the post…

    “The two credit course, Classic Albums which begins this Fall,will focus on the criteria of a classic album from its production to its marketing and impact.”

    Even if it was some super deep philosophical discussion about “Classic Albums,” it’s still 100% useless in real life.

  • @p0is0nedkoola

    An over-hyped average drummer who has never made a classic album is teaching a class on “classic albums”.

    His next class is probably “how to stay thin” .
