T.I. will be teaching alongside Dr. Melva Williams to bring an understanding of the origins of trap music.

"In higher education it is important that we challenge, empower and equip our students with the proper resources to excel," said CAU President George T. French Jr. "I believe the best way to do this is to understand their culture and create life-long experiences that will not only motivate our scholars but present them with opportunities to help them become globally competitive."

"HBCUs have a vital role in our community and have managed to withstand even while being some of the most under-resourced institutions," said T.I. in a press release. "Our national HBCUs continue to underscore the fact that we have always had to do more with less. I am excited to be partnering with Clark Atlanta University in my hometown – Atlanta."

"I applaud their innovative approach to ensuring their students are educated beyond the traditional textbook curriculum. I am honored to lend my voice and unique experiences to the betterment of today's young people and to do my part to lift the legacy of historical black colleges and universities across the nation," T.I. said.

Trap Music is a sub-genre of hip-hop music and is a cultural phenomenon that involves a variety of art forms. The genre has been embraced worldwide, has been infused with other types of music and has become a part of everyday living. The effect of Trap Music is well known, but the business of Trap Music and its ability to enlighten and educate will be explored on the campus of Clark Atlanta University.

President Obama at Morehouse College

President Barack Obama was in town on Sunday to deliver the commencement address at Morehouse, the historically black, all-male college in Atlanta.

"Excuses are tools of the incompetent used to bridge bridges to nowhere and monuments of nothingness," he said to another smattering of polite applause.
