The Rap Guide to Evolution is Baba Brinkman's comedy rap science show and full-length album, winner of the Scotsman Fringe First Award for outstanding new writing at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe.
The Rap Guide uses hip-hop music and culture to communicate concepts from modern evolutionary theory. A grant from the Wellcome Trust has provided the initial funding to make 12 rap music videos based on the album tracks, making sense of artificial selection, sexual selection, unity of common descent, the evolution of aggression and altruism, and much more.
A 60-day fundraising drive at Crowdfunder.co.uk will provide additional funding for animation, digital effects, and the licensing of high-quality nature footage to incorporate into the videos.
Contributions will be rewarded with DVDs, the use of your image in the videos, and even a live performance of the show.
