“Solo dolo!” Spoken word, hip hop, poetry and more on tonight’s episode of New Word Document Radio which features Mario the Poet and special guest Genesis Renji. Genesis talks about learning poetry from Darlin Nikki Janzen, taking influence from local artists rather than abroad, slamming with Dan Vaughn, working the grind, performs his piece “Waking Up” and waxes about reaching people through spoken word and music. There’s also commentary on Megatron screwing Robocop (=dubstep?), Halo 4 stoping votes, Air Jordan’s that cure malaria and Smasher figures out how to work the phone (thanks CiCi). Additional guests include Omar “Alpha” from Miami and Isaiah “Razi the Scribe” Furquan. Tonight’s playlist features tracks from A Shot of Genesis 2.
Check out Genesis on November 14 @ the Fireside Lounge as part of the Lyrical Sanctuary performance series. You can also find Genesis performing at Club Timbuktu on November 18th for the “Look and Listen” event at 2pm. Remember to bring three or more non-perishable food items (no shoes) for a good cause.
