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.

Fuck it, I’m a published rapper!

So I just finished a project about bmxing, cycling, skating. Why it’s so good and what makes it hard to do on the roads we share with cars and people walking really slow…was a great project. I ran workshops in lyric writing, co-wrote a spoken word / rap piece with poet Hollie McNish about getting out on your bike / skate and made a video with the kids directed by me and rapper Skuff. But now, just heard that a woman in the US liked the piece so much she’s gonna publish it.

So fuck it. I’m a published rapper now! Profits of the book go to youth charities.
