GZA to Lecture at MIT on Link Between Art and Outer Space


Frank Hoensch/Getty ImagesGZA will be making an appearance at MIT in May to talk about his new album and the link between art and outer space, The Boston Globe reports.

Sam Magee, manager of student programs at the Arts at MIT office, tells the Globe the Wu-Tang Clan founder “is coming in to talk specifically about how the arts and the study of physics intertwine.”

Magee said a physics professor will moderate GZA’s discussion with MIT students because the rapper’s new album, Dark Matter, encompasses aspects of space and time.

The rapper, whose birth name is Gary Grice, has visited the MIT campus before. In 2012, he delivered a lecture on rap. That year, he also led a discussion at Harvard on the state of hip-hop.

GZA’s visit to MIT this year is part of a series of lectures featuring hip-hop artists. Killer Mike will visit MIT this Friday to talk about technology and its impact on race relations in the U.S.
