So how many rap albums have ever been peer-reviewed, and reviewed in academic journals like Trends in Ecology and Evolution, before they had accompanying music videos?!
We were lucky to get some of the earliest performances of Baba Brinkman's sensational Rap Guide to Evolution, right around the Darwin Bicentennial, when he was here in Fresno for the Rogue festival. He has since gone on to garner much well-deserved international acclaim and become quite a superstar of nerds and geeks. Yet, a video version of the "Rap Guide..." has been long in coming. As you can see in the above video, we all now have an opportunity to help make it happen! I've already put my tuppence (and then some, so look out for my mugshot on some family tree in the videos!) into the crowdfunding hat that is trying to garner £10,000 to help produce the educational DVD with appropriately flashy videos!
Care to help? After all, this just might be your best chance to add "rap video producer" to your CV!
