Here's some advice you wouldn't expect before a theater outing: Don't turn off your cell phone at Baba Brinkman's new off-Broadway show "Ingenious Nature," his latest hyper-intellectual hip-hop stage piece.
NEW YORK | Most rappers boast about their intellect, but few go out and actually get a master's degree in medieval and Renaissance literature so they can spit better rhymes.
"This is bigger than me; it's bigger than you, bigger than rap," Mr. Brinkman says at the top of the show.
His work on Chaucer led to "The Rap Guide to Evolution," "The Rap Guide to Human Nature" and "The Rap Guide to Business," which he was commissioned to write to welcome a new class at New York University's Stern School of Business.
