9th Wonder’s documentary film “The Hip-Hop Fellow” will make its world premiere at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival on April 5th.
“The Hip-Hop Fellow” follows Grammy Award winning producer, 9th Wonder’s tenure at Harvard University, as he teaches “The Standards of Hip-Hop” course, conducts research for his thesis, lectures at Duke University and explores hip-hop’s history, culture and role in an academic setting.
In this outtake from the film, Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr.–director of theW. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research– praises 9th Wonder for his academic prowess.
“I really like Patrick. I respond to him and I admire him,” Gates says in the clip. “I would hire him in two seconds. I realized that hip-hop has reached a sublime level of self-awareness and self-consciousness.”
