I am a spoken word lyricist, writer, artist and storyteller. I have started a project designed to revise a series of 5 Shakespeare plays into spoken word hip-hop lyrics to be presented using various multi-media platforms including audio books, E-books, hard-copy books, film projects and live performances. The first story in this literary hip-hop spoken word series is titled... WHEN THE KNIGHT FELL based on the play OTHELLO by William Shakespeare.
