Ever wonder where your professor learned how to teach? Look no further than your Notorious B.I.G. album. In this Professor's Ten Commandments via Inside Higher Ed, a musicology assistant professor advises, "Never let no one know how much dough you hold/Cause you know the cheddar breed jealousy"; "Never let 'em know your next move/Don't you know bad boys move in silence or violence"; and "Know you heard this before, never get high on your own supply." Indiana University shows little resemblance to Brooklyn, but good advice is apparently universal. —Alison Go
