Crazy late notice, as usual, but tonight I'm reading at the 92nd street Y in Tribeca from Adam Bradley's The Anthology of Rap. 


I'm paired with a bunch of big-shots--Grandmaster Caz, Imani Perry, Toure, Immortal Technique, Farai Chideya, LaTasha Diggs and Adam Mansbach--who I'm expecting to bring the pain. Stop pass and watch me try to keep up.
