M.C. Hawking -- A Brief History of Rhyme

The latest album by Physicist turned Gangsta Rapper, MC Hawking

By JC

OK…. I’m about the farthest thing from someone who purchases hiphop disks there’s ever been, but I ran across this on the iTunes store and after listening to just a coupe clips HAD to buy it, because I couldn’t stop laughing. It seems physicist Stephen Hawking has decided to start up a new career as a gangsta rapper. With such classics as “Biz Bizang” and “All My Shootings Be Drivebys” and his new ode to GTA3 (“It’s about time somebody made a video game out of my life”)… and a tribute to his past in the hood with “The Dozens,” the album contains a healthy mix of quantum physics, railing against (and occasionally capping punks from) “The Institute” (MIT), and typical gangsta violence. The Hawkman Cometh… and he is one bad mutha-physicist.

You can pick it up on itunes or Amazon. ITunes has clips… Amazon doesn’t (yet).
