GZA Harvard lecture, new album scheduled for 2012

GZA will be giving a lecture at Harvard in December, on the Wu Tang Clan, music production and his approach to creativity, followed by a Q&A. The lecture will be open to the public.

GZA will also be releasing a new album in 2012, and has resigned to Babygrande Records for the release. On the trip to Harvard he is also reported to be visiting the Broad Institute and the MIT Media Lab to "meet with some of the greatest thinkers in their fields to get inspiration for his forthcoming album".

The lecture is hosted by the Black Men's Forum, a student organisation centred around providing space for African American men at Harvard. Cambridge Harvard Science Center D, 1 December, 5pm.
