Saturday, MAY 19 – MAin Stage
SHAOLIN MONKS. ANIMAL STYLES. THE RZA. THE WUTANG CLAN.
Hip hop and martial arts have been dating for a while. It looks like a while back- they made it official; meet their ultimate love child, BAR buryin' supa' Sayin' rapper Philippe "rap is a martial art" Prosper- a former Southern Shaolin disciple under Grandmaster Yim and international fighting and forms Grandchampion meets “rapper extraordinaire”-The marriage of Shaolin and Hip hop: to him rap and martial arts are synonymous. Within the short time span of his selective releases, his thought provoking raw lyricism, spiritual imagery, and diZzying rhyme patterns caused Amped Sounds' "The Critic" to describe him as "possibly having one of the best rap flow of the last 10 years". If you are a fan of classic kung fu films and the craft of rap- this is your revival. Prosper embodies the insatiable determination that characterizes Shaolin martial arts. And after finishing and MBA, serving as an Artist Chapelin to rappers and actors, and finishing his debut mixtape, Philippe is finally ready to take the rap world by storm, or rather like a "tornado ...kick".
