Wu-Tang's GZA to Speak at Harvard
A report by Rolling Stone yesterday indicated that GZA, a founding member of hip-hop collective the Wu-Tang Clan, will get to wax philosophical about his lyrics and music at Harvard University on Dec. 1.
Specifically, the rapper will lecture at the esteemed college’s Black Men’s Forum and will discuss his approach to lyric writing as well as his experiences in the music business as a rapper and emcee. The event, which is free and open to the public, will close with a Q&A session. It was initially reported the lecture would occur at 4 p.m., but GZA has indicated on his Twitter page that it will take place at 5 p.m. It will be held at the school’s Science Center D.
GZA has stated he will also visit other prestigious universities, namely the Massachussetts Institute of Technology and Boston’s Broad Institute, during his visit to Cambridge, Mass., in order to talk with top scientists and gather inspiration for his upcoming solo album. The yet-to-be-titled new project is slated for a 2012 release.
