Enter The Wu (At Harvard)

Enter The Wu (At Harvard)

If you’re anything like us the first thing you think of when you hear “Harvard University” is “Wu-Tang Clan” — at least since the GZA showed up for a speaking engagement.

The Genius was invited by the Harvard Black Men’s Forum to speak and rhyme to Hardvarks about his inspirational past — the rags-to-riches bit from rap battles to world tours with the Wu. It was probably the first time the words “Ol’ Dirty Bastard” were uttered in sequence by the cat at the lectern in a Harvard Hall. It will likely never happen again.

Word has it the hyper-humbled rapper started out a little nervous before quickly winning over the overflowing audience with tales about trying to make it while being a bike messenger in New York. He spent some time on the state of hip-hop since Wu peaked and left the stage with these worthy words:

“Live a life full of humility, gratitude, intellectual curiosity, and never stop learning. Peace!”

Thanks for the heads up, Logan Hans-Jurgen Puck! Thanks for the images, Sophie Chang!
