GZA, perhaps more than any of his Wu-Tang counterparts, is and always has been a man of science. It’s been well-documented throughout his career that The Genius’ brilliance is one devoted to the pursuit of new frontiers on planet Earth and well, well beyond. So when NASA says it’s going to recruit GZA to tell the tale of the universe’s creation in his hallmark liquid sword delivery, it only makes sense. And that’s just what they’ve done.
In celebration of the Juno spacecraft’s imminent return to our little blue space marble, GZA and NASA have crossed the streams to bring you “The Spark,” or as I’d like to call it, “The Big Bang Theory According To GZA” wherein the Shaolin assassin covers a few billion years of history in just under 3 minutes. No hooks, no breaks. You can hear GZA’s “The Spark down below, but for information on the Juno spacecraft’s return, NASA has released a free-to-you documentary treatment, which is available to stream in its entirety via iTunes. As far as when GZA’s long-awaited Dark Matter LP will land on our earthly plane, your guess is as good as ours. But this will certainly do. For now.
