    We all know Questlove is a musician, late-night personality, Twitter superstar and amateur wedding photographer. But now the 41-year-old multihyphenate is following in James Franco's footsteps and adding professor to his résumé!

    The Roots drummer and Universal Music Enterprises A&R exec Harry Weinger will jointly teach a "Classic Albums" course at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts this Spring semester, per Billboard.

    Thanks to Questo, we felt like we were at Amber Tamblyn's wedding!

    The two-credit course will focus on music, lyrics, production and business aspects of albums that are considered classic, and will also look at why such albums stand the test of time.

    Jason King, associate producer of recorded music and head of history and criticism at the institute, said Questlove is "one of the smartest people in music, besides being a fantastic musician. We thought [this class] would speak to his strengths."

    James Franco sued by ex-NYU professor

    Jeff Rabhan, chair of the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, tweeted, "Word is that @questlove is coming to teach a course next semester @CliveDavisInst on Classic Albums!"

    Questlove retweeted Rabhan, adding, "That's Professor ?uesto."

    Yes, sir!
