Are you an aspiring musician and rapper looking for a space to develop and present your work? Emcee Wreckshop brings together rappers from all over the city. Participants meet from 4-6PM on Saturdays. The session begins with a workshop taught by local rappers Add-2 and Defcee, in which students will study an exemplary work, write new material, and finally, exchange pens for microphones, taking to YCA’s virtual stage in a performative cypher. Additionally, Wreckshop participants will have opportunities to feature their work at MC Olympics (a Louder Than A Bomb special event), on the Louder Than A Bomb annual Mixtape, and other events throughout the year.
