GZA to SPEAK @ Harvard
Wu-Tang founding member GZA/The Genius is taking his lyrical prowess to another audience: Harvard. Instead of performing on the college campus, GZA will be educating students for the first time. On December 1, GZA (born Gary Grice) will present a lecture to Harvard’s Black Men’s Forum as well as hold a Q and A session. GZA will discuss his career and his songwriting techniques. The lecture will be open to the public.
The GZA’s educational tour doesn’t stop there. He plans to speak with scientists and other academics at the Broad Institute and the MIT Media Lab. He wants to use their knowledge to help him write his next solo album, which will be released in 2012.
