PR: Hip-Hop Revolutionizes Education in Urban Classrooms

In a new episode of the web series, EPIPHANY, Dr. Christopher Emdin explores what happens when you combine science education and hip-hop in public schools.
Science Genius is a new urban science education initiative spearheaded by Dr. Christopher Emdin of Columbia Teacher's College & GZA of the seminal hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan. Over the course of a semester, 10 New York City high school classes will write raps on core science concepts to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the topics.
"We're not going to accept nursery school rhymes. You're not gonna come in here and say 'I'm here to play, it's DNA.' We're turning up the responsibility for the young people to engage in hip hop differently," says Emdin. "We're changing the narrative of commercial hip hop."
We're proud to announce the latest visual we put together for our song "Diamonds". It's a remix featuring the homie Teek Hall. The track was produced, mixed, and mastered by our in-house producer Summer The Kid. Summer also shot, directed, and edited the video. We wanted to create something with a cinematic feel; a sequence to symbolize the theme of the song.

I composed and produced all of the music on my own. Kavan "The Kid" and Nova Rockafeller directed and produced the video. An intensely large amount of hard work and time went into shooting this video and any help "getting it out there" would mean a lot. I know everyone who worked on this project would be more than grateful.

Rooted in life experience, his diverse style incorporates lyrics that are streetwise with a conscious message. He explains, “World issues and human suffering were common topics of discussion in our household growing up, as well as exposure to many types of music and cultures. My music and my message are a natural extension of this.”
