Astrobiology Rap

Album: Astrobiology Magazine (2008)
  • Rap music is better known for four letter words than for six syllabled ones, so "Astrobiology Rap" is a pleasant surprise. The boys at NASA were so impressed with this composition of Londoner Jonathan Chase that they published it in the European edition of Astrobiology Magazine. Chase raps in flawless English, and his didactic poem put to music is supplemented by soundbytes from Professor Stephen Hawking and President John F. Kennedy, who would doubtless have approved of this original effort. Chase though is not the first London rapper to put this at times blighted artform to productive use. Previously, South London firefighter Stephen-remell Coleman had used it to raise awareness of smoke alarms. >>

  • Matt from Houston, TxI don't understand. why would it matter how many letters or syllables are in the title.it's the song that matters. it's the pages. the title is the cover. music is like a library. the artists are the authors. the title is the cover. songs are pages
