1. GZA Chops It Up with Renowned Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson (VIDEO).

    GZA ‘s taken the act of droppin’ science to whole new levels of late. Not only has Wu-Tang’s liquid swordsman been chopping it up with scientists at M.I.T. and Harvard, and devoted his next album, Dark Matter , to the subject of quantum physics, but he recently appeared on astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson ‘s StarTalk program to discuss “astrophysics as a muse.” “You got my whole astrophysics vocabulary oozing out of your rap lyrics!” Tyson exclaims excitedly. As usual, GZA finishes strong: “If I use the word ‘nova’ I’ll be speaking about a star unlike the average rapper who will probably be talking about a car.” (Interview starts at 4:35)
