Nas, Olu Dara Stand In for mtvU


mtvU will debut an episode of Stand In featuring Nas and Olu Dara Tuesday, Feb. 1 at 1 p.m. (EST), MTV Networks’ 24-hour college network said Monday.

Hip-hop superstar Nas and his father, legendary jazz musician Olu Dara, paid a surprise visit to Morehouse College’s “Improvisational Jazz” class to serve as substitute professors for the day, and mtvU cameras were there to capture it.

Previous Stand In participants included Marilyn Manson, who taught an “Art & Society” class at Temple University; Snoop Dogg, who stood in as coach for the University of Southern California football team; Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), who taught an “American Foreign Policy” class at the University of New Hampshire; Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt, who taught a surprise creative-writing class at SUNY Stony Brook in Long Island, N.Y.; and The Rev. Jesse Jackson, who taught a surprise class on racism and the law at Spelman College in Atlanta.
