The science of life.
The Rap Guide To Evolution has them all. An award winner at the 2009 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the show is written and performed by Canadian rap artist, Baba Brinkman, presenting a hip hop exploration of the theories of Darwin, presenting songs, statistics and scientific research on the subject of evolution. The show is guaranteed to make you marvel at the power of sex. And natural selection.
Darwin got it goin’ on

P.S. For you evolution nerds out there, Rap Guide recently started filming the final Q & A segment of the show because it’s always different. At the end of performance, Brinkman takes questions and comments from the audience, does his best to answer them and then remixes the content into the freestyle segment of the song Performance Feedback Revision. We love the spontaneity, or random mutation (see we did learn something!), since every night’s questions and answers offer a different blend of rhymes. It’s variation and selection (aka evolution!) in action. The new videos will be posted every day on the Rap Guide YouTube channel: youtube.com/rapguide.
