MC Lars speaks on Christopher Marlowe vs. Kanye West

Longtime friend of "The Beat" MC Lars gave a presentation on the history of hip-hop music and culture, as part of the 2009 Stevenson Symposium "The Power of Words" at Stevenson School. During the presentation, he broke down the stylistic similarities between Christopher Marlowe's classic "Come With Me and Be My Love," and Kanyeezy's "Stronger." Both adhere to the 4/4 rhyme pattern that constitute iambic tetrameter. Interesting stuff.
