Neil deGrasse Tyson interviews GZA on Star Talk

Over the last few years, world renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and GZA have become BFF’s thanks to a shared love of science.  Tyson and GZA have spoken in interviews before, but this interview from NdGT’s Star Talk show is the first one I’ve seen on video.  Throughout this lengthy 34 minute clip, GZA demonstrates how science, specifically astrophysics, has informed not only his own music but that of other members of the Wu-Tang Clan.

    This is awesome, insightful, and inspirational. GZA and deGrasse Tyson touched on some good points about this newer generation of hip hop. Too many rappers don’t push the art and just follow the trends. Nas and the Beastie Boys summed it up: “Too many rappers, not enough MCs”

  • long live GZA, long live Wu-Tang
