    Music producer and rapper Swizz Beatz has been named the first producer-in-residence at NYU's Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music at the Tisch School of the Arts, according to The Associated Press. Swizz and wife Alicia Keys just welcomed their first son together, Egypt, last month, so it's been a good month for Beatz.

    New York University said the appointment for the current academic year is immediate. Beatz will offer students one-on-one sessions, group lectures, songwriting critiques and mentoring. He has worked with everyone from Lil Wayne to Metallica to Beyoncé to Jay-Z, so he can distill some real world/real studio experience for these eager co-eds.
