The GZA is no stranger to the classroom or science. The Genius was recently tapped by Columbia University’s Dr. Chris Emdin and his program which uses hip-hip-hop to teach science.
“The people who most embrace hip-hop culture are the same populations who are most disinterested in school and disinterested in science. To me, the markers of success are the students who see themselves as scientists, who are having conversations about science, Emdin said”
GZA also tells CBS :
“The goal is just to awaken the children, make them more aware and embrace science and everything connected to it”
