Just a few weeks into his new role as a music professor at the University of Virginia, hip-hop artist A.D. Carson has produced a new album.

Carson, who earned his Ph.D. from Clemson University in May, wrote, performed and produced his previous album as his dissertation project. The album, “Owning My Masters: The Rhetorics of Rhymes & Revolutions,” earned national media attention for its unique format – a fully realized rap album is hardly a common format for dissertation work – and helped Carson land a faculty position at UVA.

His most recent album, “Sleepwalking, Vol. 1: A Mixtape,” came out last week.
