Vaughan Bell points us to a new concept album by rapper Baba Brinkman that is shot-through with evolutionary psychology. Beyond being a great album, Bell notes that it's also "a brilliant guide to the theories and controversies of evolutionary psychology." We like the track listing, which is structured around five hypotheses (Creationism, Spiritualism, Social Constructivism, Biological Determinism, Evolutionism). More from Bell on the album itself:
Baba Brinkman is a beat dealer and science rhyming pioneer who has just recorded an awesome hip-hop album on evolutionary psychology.
Most importantly, it's actually a great album. It's not an attempt at parody or a tribute, it's an inspired, groove heavy, high production values record with a wonderful lyrical touch.
It's not for kids, you simply won't be able to play half the tracks to your high school science class without risking your job, as in classic hip-hop tradition, it's down and dirty from beginning to end.
