Questlove & Universal Records VP of A&R To Teach NYU Course On Classic Albums

Congrats to The Roots’ ?uestlove, as he and Harry Weinger (the VP of A&R over at Universal Records) will be teaching a class at the prestigious NYU come this Spring semester. The 2-credit “Classic Albums” course will focus on “the concept of what it means for something to be called classic or seminal, as well as take a close look at the music, lyrics, production, business aspects — such as promotion and marketing — that informed the release and reception of the album, and try to provide a context as to why these albums have stood the test of time.” More info on the class below!

New York University was so #based yesterday.

Not sure if he’s “qualified” to speak on any of that but who cares, it’s awesome! LOL check out the highlights below, and read the full transcript over at The Fader. Marisa Mendez
