School: North Carolina Central University/Duke University
Class: Hip-Hop History/Sampling Soul
Complex says: 9th Wonder is better known as a producer, but he's dabbled on the mic (under the alias 9thmatic) and he's also dabbled in teaching. His first teaching gig was at his old school North Carolina Central University (he attended, but never graduated) alongside Play. More recently, he's been assisting Professor Mark Anthony Neal of Duke University in an African-American Studies course called Sampling Soul. Obviously, 9th is the right guy to ask. The only part we can't figure out is why Phonte never taught a course. He actually graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors from North Carolina Central University!
