“Hip hop is my vehicle to scientific and universal enlightenment.”
GZA continues to use hip-hop as a means to educate the youth in this TEDxTeen Talk. The Wu-Tang MC has been encouraging public high school students to learn about science through music with his semester-long Science Genius program that he created along with Christopher Emdin of Columbia University’s Teachers College, and Rap Genius . According to the stats provided: “The pilot program met with great success in terms of recognition and results: participating schools saw an increase in regents exams scores and 15-25% in attendance.”
Salute, The Genius.
