In 2014, the LAByrinth Theater Company produced A Sucker EMCEE, a one-man show from Craig “Mums” Grant. Grant, a poet and actor, used hip-hop and rhymes to tell his life story, from a young boy in the Bronx to a great success in the acting field — he appeared on HBO’s OZ — to back to the Bronx again.

Three and a half years after the play’s initial run, the show is coming back, this time at the National Black Theatre in Harlem.

The show will have a limited six-show engagement. The original production team, which included director Jenny KoonsDJ Rich Medina and set designer David Meyer, are all returning, so expect the same quality as the initial show.

Tickets for A Sucker EMCEE are on sale now and cost $25 in advance and $35 at the door. The show will run from April 26 through April 30, 2017, so jump on this quickly.

Eventually, he began producing beats and started rapping over the tracks. His lyrical skills are diverse and he focuses on real life situations.

Boogie Mics in the Bx

I was amongst royalty last Friday Night when I visited my old stomping grounds in the Bronx. If you are a upcoming emcee in the Bx, you may know of an open mic series in hunts Point, BX called the Boogie Mics. This month event is presented by a new generation of hip-hop pioneers named The Rebel Diaz Arts Collective, grand master emcee was John Mega of G.T.P. and Warren Britt and features DJ Illanoiz and DJ Charlie Hustle.

A wide collective young and aspiring emcees artists hit the stage with natural and radiant energy performing their original songs to a crowd of hip-hop heads and fellow artists. For some artists it was a first time experience performing in front a live audience. “We’re just gonna have fun and do what we love…” said a new upcoming duo.

The night was closed out by Bx’s lyrical Mike Tyson, Chris Rivers. The heir to the Hip-Hop’s P.R. Ambassador, Big Pun.

The Rebel Diaz Arts Collective (RDAC-BX) is a group of Bronx based Hip-Hop artists and educators. Running a performance and multimedia space that aims to utilize Hip-Hop culture as a means for education and self-empowerment in our community. Check them and support!
