The GZA gave PBS News Hour a sneak peek of a verse off his upcoming album, Dark Matter, and its a poetic depiction of how the universe came into being:
“Everything we see around us: the sun, the moon, the stars,
Are millions of worlds that astound us
The universe in size was hard to fathom.
It was composed in a region small as a single atom,
Less than one-trillionth the size the point of a pen,
Microscopic but on a macro level within.”
The rapper has also been using his love of science to inspire high school students. GZA has joined forces with Columbia University professor Christopher Emdin for a program called Science Genius B.A.T.T.L.E.S.. Students from ten New York City public schools will create science-based raps, and then participate in rap battles leading to an ultimate showdown with GZA acting as a judge for the finalists.
Aww, GZA. We heart you.
