Critics of hip hop often state the culture promotes ignorance. However, hip hop has become a course of study at several universities. There are university professors teaching courses about Jay-Z and there are other rappers who are becoming professors, themselves. GZA, of the Wu-Tang Clan, can be added to the number of rappers who are becoming professors.
Previously, GZA lectured at Harvard University in November and he was successful. Now, GZA is touring in Europe and will be lecturing again. GZA will discuss his legendary career at Oxford University in London this upcoming weekend. Currently, GZA is working on a new album, but is touring Europe, discussing the events of his career.
After going to Sheffield and Oxford University, GZA will be going to universities in Switzerland, Germany, France, and several other European countries. GZA is also in discussion to do lectures at NYU and MIT.
