    Wu Tang is one of my favorite groups and I think that its awesome that they are really being recognized for their raw talent and genius methods of teaching. From The GZA speaking at various universities to logical interpretations of classic tracks and albums I love how the odd marriage of music and education is being brought into the light. Thanks for the share and great post !!
