Rapper turned historian…

So I’ve just finished a load of work with a group called Historyworks and another called Cycle of Songs. The whole point was to try and write a rap based on the history of slavery in Cambridge. There were two blokes I wrote about: Olaudah Equiano and Thomas Clarkson. You should look them up. I learnt a lot and worked with a dope choir and also felt a bit shit that after hundreds of years this shit is still going on. So I wrote about that too.
