The MIT Rap Challenge
Toward bringing us together during the 2020 pandemic, an MIT student, Curtis Northcutt (a.k.a. PomDP the PhD Rapper) created the MIT rap song with tribute to notables like Claude Shannon, Patrick Winston, and Feynman. The MIT rap song and music video was played at the 2020 MIT graduation during pre-commencement. The song is a single from the upcoming NERD album and the landmark song of the 'MIT Rap Challenge', a challenge to other schools, companies, and communities to create a rap song that empowers and embodies the spirit of their community.
