>Do Rap and Hip Hop artists study at Berklee or  Julliard?

Not only that, they have a course in "turntablism," that skill in  scratching 
albums for dancers.
Long ago, Berklee realized that it is not the "Berklee College of Jazz,"  but 
"...of Music." Its charter seems to have evolved (some might say devolved)  
from producing Jazz musicians and teachers to providing production talent to 
the  film industry. 
This is not to demean or degrade their commitment to Jazz, which is still  as 
solid as ever. It's just not their dominant calling.
