Wpg Free Press: Rapping with the prof

March 27, 2018 — 

As the Winnipeg Free Press reports: 

He doesn’t wear gold chains, have a “rapper name” or flash gang signs when he performs, although he does have a following and there are requests for his videos as soon as they drop.

Michael Eskin, a professor in the department of human nutritional sciences at the University of Manitoba, is known for rapping about lipids, his area of expertise.

He’s received a lot of coverage for the “lipid raps.” They are used at other universities and some have even been translated to Russian.

You’ll find raps such as Lipids Get a Real Bad Rap: It’s Just Not Fair and Fatty Acids: The Good, The Bad, and The Uglyhttps://youtu.be/fTw41CO2qmQ.

He’s also done one on Passover, which has been described as “a family favourite.” And with Passover beginning this weekend, that video will no doubt get another round of hits.
