GZA Lectures the Origins of the Universe in a Rap (Video)

Just for this, I now reclaim GZA as my personally most respected Wu member. With an enduring interest in science and his dedicated album Dark Matter in the making, GZA gave a lecture at the University of Toronto. Combining his knowledge of matter and skill in MCing, he easily rhymed out the origins of the universe according to the Big Bang Theory.

“The main thing I want you to take away from this is no matter where you start out in life or what career you choose, do not stop learning about yourself and the Universe and your surroundings, whether physically or metaphysically”

GZA recently teamed up with Prof. Christopher Emdin (another mastermind at work to combine the fields of rap/Hip Hop and science/knowledge) to improve science education in NYC.

I wish this shit was ‘mainstream’, I wish our 6 year olds would see this in music or science class and I wish this Dark Matter album drops real soon! Check it ..

“The main thing I want you to take away from this is no matter where you start out in life or what career you choose, do not stop learning about yourself and the Universe and your surroundings, whether physically or metaphysically. Challenging myself to explore outside my comfort zone has enabled me to make amazing, brilliant new friends and colleagues and given me the tremendous opportunity to speak to you today.”
