Yup, on a Saturday afternoon April 5th 2014 CKUT and Rickey D Events (still bringing you those slow jams every Sunday night on the Sound of Soul midnight – 1am) put on a lecture unlike any the Stephen Leacock Auditorium at McGill University had seen before.
For one – there was a dj there. Thanks to Pro-V (All Day Way Live Radio Wednesdays 3 – 5pm) on CKUT.

Perhaps the biggest event the station has every held? It involved a number of new challenges. Like how do you promote a lecture by a hip hop artist?
How do you deal with online tickets?
The event was hosted by Stephen “Zip” Hennesey (host of Ill Groove Garden Sunday night 11pm – midnight on CKUT).
And we pretty much packed the place.
Gza was Generous. He read a prepared speech that connected the dots between chess, physics, being relevant, hip hop, love, the meaning of life and more.
A bunch of people lined up to ask questions.
