A call out for evolution & genetics raps   posted by Razib @ 2/27/2006 11:10:00 PM

I'd like to give a shout out and request submissions for evolution & genetics related raps. Yo, you heard that right. Raps. Something that is redolent of "Lazy Sunday," I'm not looking for hard-core mimics of West coast thuggin' style. Incorporations of R.A. Fisher, Chuck D. (Charles Darwin) and W.D. Hamilton into the lyrics would be good. Doing some conversions like, "I'm going to smack your ass," to "I'm going to stat your ass" would be cool too. Get into a mindset of genomicists and statistical geneticists unintimidated by artful integrations of physical scientists. Not frontin' or trippin,' but calling out for respect.1 Remember, evolution and genetics is in the end all about "playin."

Keep them short and sweet, and post them into the comments box. I'll take the best ones and repost them (with attribution if offered) on this and my other blog. Evangelicals have their "praise music," the evo-thugs need to represent!

Thanks ahead to all participants.

1 - Please keep intimations of gang-land style violence subtle and to a minimum. I'm look for a "positive" but hip face for evolution and genetics lyrics.
