IN CONVERSATION’ WITH KRS ONE, AKALA & LOWKEY + live stage performance – Fri 26th Nov @ The British Library
The British Library,
96 Euston Road
Rap and hip hop are among the most influential cultural forms of recent times. The art of verbal flow over beats that shot to prominence in late 1970s US cities has gone on to global popularity and a presence in every language. Rap includes some of the most complex wordplay, syncopation and rhyming to be found in poetry. It also incorporates hard-hitting social and political issues, often making Hip Hop clearest voice of the dispossessed.
Join KRS ONE, one of the legendary voices of Hip Hop, together with some of the sharpest UK artists, Akala and Lowkey for a discussion of how words impact at street level.
Chaired by Professor MK Asante
The event will be followed by a live stage performance by Akala and guests.
£10 /£7.50 concessions (incl entrance to live performance)
