GZA Talks The Genius Of Science At TEDxTeen

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

GZA recently took his skills back to the lecture circuit in order to discuss the benefits of scientific studies during a recent talk at TEDxTeen. The Wu-Tang killer bee is the co-founder of the Science Genius program, which encourages youth in the New York City public school system to engage more aggressively in scientific studies with the help of hip-hop. GZA made it his business to spread the genius of the program to the audience at TEDxTeen with a comprehensive talk that detailed his childhood interest in science and explained the origins of the curriculum championed by he and co-founder Dr. Christopher Emdin. GZA pointed to science as a way of exploring and developing a better understanding of the physical universe before a few of his students hit the stage to rhyme about the theory of relativity. Check the footage below to watch GZA's talk on the genius of science at TEDx Teen. Look out for GZA's forthcoming Dark Matter LP. Stay tuned for more from the Wu.
