Today, we’re introducing you to Staten Island rapper Young Lucid, a 19 year old prodigy following in Shaolin’s rich hip-hop tradition like the famed Wu Tang Clan. Last week, Lucid released his the first single from his LP “Lucid Dreams” a catchy, dreamy, track called “She Love It” which features R&B singer Elaine Kristal.
Staten Island isn’t known for very many things. We’ve always had Fresh Kills, a now closed landfill that could supposedly be seen from outer space. More recently, we’ve had a run of nationally notable reality shows like Mob Wives and Jersey Shore highlighting our guido-american population. More than anything though, when someone mentions Staten Island, people think of the Wu Tang Clan. Being an integral part of the group’s success, Method Man has become something of a local legend, who walks around the borough like he’s not internationally famous.

Why do we get to experience the awesomeness of hearing Gza rap about science? Because the rapper is part of a new program that is encouraging New York City public schools to use hip hop as a tool to teach science. Pretty cool.
