Thanks to Cambridge Junction and Festival of Ideas we just smashed a sell out show – Poets versus Rappers. 3 poets, 3 rappers, each got 15 minutes to prove their skills. Everyone smashed it and audience was nuts.
Big up to the rappers – Jimmy Danger aka Audio Danger, Skuff, Courtz, Deanna Rodger (poet in disguise).
Big up to the poets – Hollie McNish, Mark Grist, Stephen Morrison Burke, Michelle Madsen.
Big up to Martin Goodman Photography
Check them all out if you haven’t already. Poets won. Whatever!
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.
