Diplomats rapper Jim Jones announced that he will be trading in the mic for the textbooks, taking over as a music instructor. Jones, who is expected teach at a New York City high school, told Rap Radar he is excited about the opportunity. “It’s definitely going to be fun. I [will] have to go home the weekend before and write out my lessons,” he continued, “This will be the funnest class you can go to and shit but you gonna learn a lot.”
The Dipset member is expected to teach for just eight weeks and is currently waiting for the green light. “Right now they’re actually going back and forth with the Board of Education to see what goes on and shit. I fully don’t know the whole logistics of everything.”
Although Jones has never taught a music course before, he feels as though he has a lot to offer. “I’ve done music business since I was a teenager. I had major executive positions. I’ve been successful as an artist and successful as a label. We’ve been successful as a movement.”
Although a location and date have not yet been set, Jones plans to begin his role as a high school music instructor later in the year.
