Professor Lyrical[1] is a Hip hop artist from Lowell, Massachusetts, who is also a university professor in Boston. His 2005 album iNFiNiTi won for album of the year in the M.I.C. Hip Hop awards in Boston.[2]

He is a full-time Lecturer at Northeastern University, and has been an adjunct professor at several other schools part-time in Massachusetts, primarily in the areas of Math and entertainment (including a Hip Hop course at Lasell College, entertainment courses at Bay State College, math courses at New England Arts Institute, and a discrete math course at Wentworth Institute of Technology.). His latest (8/2013) album, Put Em All To Shame is both an album and a book and they appear together as "The World's First Albook." The book is entitled Put Em All To Shame (The Curriculum)].

He received a BS and an MS (Mathematics) from UMass-Lowell and a Doctorate from Northeastern University. In the early and mid 1990s he competed in several invitation only freestyle battles, such as the Battle for World Supremacy in NYC and the Universal Zulu Nation East Coast Finals; he went on to win many more in the years to follow. He is part of the Mass Industry Committee, which also created 617Live TV. Lyrical has filled in for fellow Boston rapper Akrobatik on JAM'N 94.5 to perform the daily "SPORTS RAP UP" (part of the highly rated Morning Show) on occasion when Akrobatik has been unavailable. He has appeared on many different radio segments, television shows, news programs and even movies.[3]
