The Library: The Sonnet Man and Illus

Oct 23, 2013, 02:00 PM

Two great interviews this week on The Library...William Shakespeare is considered the world's greatest writer, but for many his Elizabethan English is challenging. The Sonnet Man, conceived and produced by Broadway playwright Arje Shaw sets Shakespeare's sonnets to Hip Hop blending classical literature with an urban beat, hearing Shakespeare as never before, and opening it up to young people in a genre they know and love.I interviewed the star of this production rap artist Devon Glover.My Second interview is with Hip-Hop artist Illus...Family First is the brand new cd by ILLUS featuring some of the best emcees in the business. Each emcee also produces the track they are featured on, making this a one of a kind musical experience.Family First features Blueprint, Apathy, Ill Bill, Erin Barra, J-Live, Phashara from the Beatmonstas, DJ Johnny Juice, Esoteric, Chuuwee and more!
