Idris Goodwin, EQ and "The Gangster Rap Question"

So my next big show in the Twin Cities will be Thursday, March 3 at the Loft Literary Center.  It's the ongoing Equilibrium spoken-word series.  Me, Lisa Brimmer and Ed Bok Lee will be opening up for Idris Goodwin.  It'll be free and all-ages.  7pm sharp.  Here's the Facebook event page.

Idris is one of my favorite people-- as a rapper, as a poet, as a writer and as a person, he's consistently brilliant.  His new book, "These Are the Breaks," just came out on Write Bloody Publishing.  Buy it here.

Here's something amazing to watch:

And he can also rap:

Hope to see you there. I'll be unveiling a new piece about race and hip hop.  And Ed, Lisa and Idris will all be great-- this is a can't-miss spoken-word show.
