U-God’s first single from Keynote Speaker, due July 23rd.
Rap legend GZA gives us a sneak peak of one of the songs from his new album, Dark Matter. The rapper has encouraged New York City public schools use hip hop as a tool to teach science. GZA/Genius, take us the fuck outta here…
This interview dropped in December, but somehow slipped under our radar. That being said, watch GZA speak with the StarTalk crew about how hip-hop relates to science. Forewarning, this gets pretty geeky at times.
