Performance Feedback Revision - a peer-reviewed hip-hop definition of Evolution!

Last year, we enjoyed Baba Brinkman's performance of The Rap Guide to Evolution on our campus when he was in Fresno for the Rogue Festival. His show has gone on to a larger world stage since, as you can see in the above video, from the Hammersmith Apollo in the UK. He was there as a part of Nerdstock: Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People, which was recently broadcast on television by the BBC! You can watch the whole show on YouTube (if you're outside the UK and therefore not able to use BBC's iPlayer). I thought I should share Performance, Feedback, Revision here for my students since I am going over the basic conceptual framework of evolution in several classes these days - and Brinkman provides a fun restatement of some of the concepts, in rap (and peer-reviewd rap, no less!)! If you haven't done so yet, you really ought to go listen to the whole rap album, available via his website.
