Lupe Fiasco Teaches Rap for Charity, Admits It's a 'Very Hard Job'


Lupe Fiasco


The rapper was excited to meet teens with talent during a charity event in New York, but does not have plan to make teaching a full-time job.

Hip-hop star Lupe Fiasco turned teacher at a New York charity event on Saturday, October 9, instructing a class on how to rap. The "Superstar" hitmaker hosted a recording session with several teens during an event thrown by hip-hop non-profit organization World Up, as part of New York City's Re:Form School pop-up art exhibition.

Fiasco coached the students on how to write lyrics and a catchy hook, and offered advice on how to spit vocals on a track. The MC tells MTV News, "It was dope. It was real dope today. It was a very exhilarating kinda thing to see the youth and the talent that they already have within them and kinda get an opportunity to converse with them and learn some things from them and vice versa."

But the rap star has laughed off suggestions he might make teaching a full-time job. He adds, "I'm good at certain things that I do but, you know, teaching is a very hard job. I don't low-ball it by any means. I definitely don't think... 'cause you can rapport with somebody that you can be a teacher with no training or no nothing like that. You gotta have the curriculum and make sure that kids (will be) able to comprehend and make sure you even can fully explain actually what you're trying to teach to somebody at the same time too."

"I don't have any of those qualities or any of those responsibilities so (these) hour, couple-hour sessions showing kids how to rap is all that got."
