Providence, RI’s Zumo Kollie talks about the time he fell in love with hip hop. I remember when I was 9 years old, my friend brought DMX’s “And then there was X” into school and I was immediately intrigued by hip hop as a whole. The following summer I heard KRS-One’s “The Bridge is Over” and the rest is history! Now I am running a hip hop blog and trying to represent the culture as best I can.

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."
