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 Ugly

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.
