RZA's stuff (well, most of the Wu-Tang stuff in general) is what I refer the "hurr durr rap is crap" people to.

/claiming to dislike an entire genre of music is so dumb

I didn't seee much information in TFA, but I thought of a decent launching point:

"Dark Matter" could be a metaphor for African-Americans. They are unseen (metaphorically), but are a huge "gravitational" influence on American pop culture. They're responsible for Rock & Roll, Blues. Rap, Jazz... Their pull is inexorable, our culture coalesces around them, but they remain largely unseen.

/Of course, African-Americans a minority, whereas there's about 6 times more dark matter than "normal" matter...
//Also, they're not so invisible anymore.

So his "space themed" CD is going to be based on a completely pretend substance, "dark matter", that astrophysicists invented to explain gravitational effects that cannot be explained using the Standard Model. Excellent. He might as well have based it on Invisible Unicorn Space Hookers.

What amazes me is a man that smart is still a member of the Nation of Gods and Earths and is a five-percenter. That is even more retarded than being a creationist

Educational rap? It's been done, n***a.

Seriously though, anything to make people who listen to rap smarter. That's not a dig on rap. I like to see passive education: Video games with real history in the story lines or novels where some scenes take place in realistic workplaces that show that actual method of that craft. People who don't want to study things in a class often like to know about them once they're finally exposed.

What an awesome prospect. It probably won't surpass Liquid Swords and Beneath The Surface in greatness,but it'll hopefully be as good as Pro Tools.
