Genius of Science: GZA & Science Genius at TEDxTeen

GZA is a founding member of the seminal hip hop group, the Wu-Tang Clan, and co-founder of SCIENCE GENIUS with Christopher Emdin of Teachers College. The program seeks to engage high school students in science using hip hop. The pilot program met with great success in terms of recognition and results: participating schools saw an increase in regents exams scores and 15-25% in attendance. When asked who was his favorite Wu Tang member, Mayor Elect of New York City, Bill DiBlasio, said "GZA. Not only is he a great lyricist, but I also admire his work to engage African American and Latino students in the sciences."

GZA appeared alongside RZA in Jim Jarmusch's film Coffee & Cigarettes, opposite Bill Murray. The two also appeared on the Chappelle Show's in the now legendary skits "Wu Tang Financial" and "Racial Draft."

GZA has lectured at Harvard, Oxford, USC, MIT, NYU, Cornell, and JPL/NASA. In his travels, he has met with a myriad scientists to seek inspiration for his forthcoming album entitled DARK MATTER, which will be released Spring 2014. The project is a natural extension of his longtime fascination with the cosmos. "I will take a quantum leap and discuss the universe while taking us on a journey through deep space. Traveling at lightspeed from the galactic center of one galaxy to the farthest corners of another. I hope my listeners will enjoy this cosmic adventure within a world of colossal planets, gas giants, meteorites, comets, and asteroids in the most extreme conditions."

J Dilla & Motown Unplugged


Lovely D-centric mix:
Last year while i was listening to some Motown stuff, i started hearing J Dilla rhymes in my head over the tunes that were playing. Being that Dilla was not only one of the greatest producers ever, but in my opinion one of the greatest MCs as well, i wondered what it would have sounded like to have him rhyming backed by the original Motown band and artists.
As i was putting together this tribute to the Detroit music I love, everything fell into place with the song titles and rhythms making perfect sense...

So here is my version of of J Dilla "Unplugged" backed by the OG Motown band.

Catch Wreck - Origins Volume 1

Origins is a reflection of over a dozen years of experience in developing the Hip Hop scene in Boston, from the dreams of recording with and opening for notable acts, to the realities of creating in what can often feel like an isolated and unsupportive environment. From a young age, Catch Wreck has not only sought to establish himself in the scene he has helped cultivate in his hometown but also to seek out and learn from those who pioneered this art form.

What does the LP Sound Like?

Catch Wreck is undeniably an artist on the rise with more supporters steadily joining his movement. Featured in XXL’s “15 Boston Rappers You Should Know”, Catch Wreck has released four solo Hip Hop projects independently since 2009, as well as an EP with his rock band Sweatshop.

Catch Wreck says of the Origins LP:

“Its been a long time and I’m ready to share this history with people. At thirteen, I recorded one of my first songs at Chuck D from Public Enemy’s studio in long island with the artist Kyle Jason and I was lucky enough to include that on this project. I hope everyone enjoys this. [...] It is a proper representation of my growth as an artist [and] as I begin to push forward with releasing new material in 2014. Most importantly, I hope that it can motivate and encourage fellow artists to pursue their path and craft, at the same time understanding how much time and effort it takes to move towards success”

Yasiin Gaye - The Departure (Side One)

Amerigo Gazaway’s new *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series’ first installment, the producer unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled “Yasiin Gaye”. Building the album’s foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye’s Motown classics, Gazaway re-orchestrates the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s dense raps and Gaye’s soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality far closer to Gaye’s famous duets than that of a “mashup” album.
