Yo yo yo! MC in the house!

I get questions about Stephen Hawking quite a bit. This irritates me, for two reasons:

1) His biggest contribution to physics is probably his idea that black holes can leak radiation, a hypothesis that marries General Relativity to Quantum Mechanics, and is therefore nearly impenetrable, and

2) He is smarter than I am, and more famous, so I hate him.

So there you go. But I was surprised, when researching him some years ago, to find out that besides a brilliant scientist, Hawking is actually an accomplished gangsta rapper. This may surprise you too, but as they say, if it's on the Internets it must be true:

Still don't believe me? Then check out MC Hawking's crib.

As Dr. Hawking himself says, "I ain't Thomas Dolby, science don't blind me."
