Today the Mayhem Poets came by B96 to chat and they were awesome. They are Hip Hop artists and Slam Poetry performers who have been described as “The Simpsons meets Malcolm X at a Notorious B.I.G. concert.”

Before you jump to conclusions about going to a poetry show, let me assure you, they guys are amazing. No whack garbage about flowers and moonbeams here. These guys are funny thought-provoking and family friendly without being boring or dull.

The Mayhem Poets are in town performing at the Children’s Theatre Company in South Minneapolis and so far they have been getting rave reviews from everybody who has seen the show.

We talked about Music, Poetry and Hip Hop culture and the fellas really had an awesome vibe. You can hear the interview this Sunday morning on “B96 In Focus with Miss Shannan” or come back here Monday to find the audio.

Here’s a video of one of their songs performed by Black Skeptic. It’s called “Frankenstein Saves Hop Hop”

You have a few chances to still see them next week, through November 7th at the Children’s Theater Company. I think we might even try to take Dom to a matinee.  I have to try to fill his little brain with as much knowlege as I can.
