Back to School: Afrika Bambaataa, who has been appointed to a three-year term as a visiting scholar at Cornell University, the Associated Press reports. The teaching gig, which was announced Tuesday, is a collaboration between the school’s hip-hop collection and its music department. The iconic DJ, who was instrumental in the emergence of hip-hop during the early ’80s, will visit Cornell’s Upstate New York campus several days each year to talk to classes, meet with student and community groups and perform music. His first trip up will be in November.
