CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Rapper GZA from the Wu-Tang Clan will talk about how art and outer space collide at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in May as part of the school's speaker series featuring hip-hop artists.

The Boston Globe reports (http://bit.ly/1aQR7C0 ) that Gary Grice, who goes by the stage name GZA, also will discuss his latest album when he meets with students.

Sam Magee, manager of student programs at the Arts at MIT office, says physics professor Christoph Paus will moderate GZA's lecture since the rapper's latest album, "Dark Matter," encompasses aspects of space and time.

GZA isn't a first time visitor to the campus. The founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan visited MIT in 2012 to talk to students about freestyle rapping, the music that influences his life, and chess.
