What if Stephen Hawking, instead of being a brilliant physicist and best-selling author in a wheelchair, were a gangsta rapper? The result would sound something like ”E=MC Hawking,” or maybe” A Brief History of Rhyme,” two of the pseudo albums dreamt up at MC Hawking’s Crib. The bio, detailing MC Hawking’s experiments with the Beastie Boys and rap-metal band Dark Matter, is full of antimatter. But the almost offensive MP3 cuts featuring a Hawkingesque computer-generated rapper voice shouldn’t be missed (”Kicking science like no one else can/My d — – is twice as long as my attention span”).
