Wu-Tang Clan at Harvard

Or, one of the members at least. According to an article by Matthew Perpetua in Rolling Stone

Wu-Tang Clan rapper GZA/The Genius is set to give a lecture about his music career and lyrical craft at Harvard’s Black Men’s Forum on December 1st. The lecture, which will be held at 4 p.m., will be followed by a Q&A with the legendary emcee and is open to the general public.

While he’s in Cambridge, the rapper originally known as Gary Grice also plans to check out the Broad Institute and the MIT Media Lab. The GZA “intends to speak with scientists and thinkers there to seek inspiration for his next album.”

That should certainly be an interesting discussion.

Wu-Tang Clan is a hip-hop group from Staten Island noted for its diverse influences.
