THE LONGEST RUNNING POETRY SLAM ON THE WEST COAST!
Bringing you some of the best poetry from across the world every week since 1999, and third in the nation at the 2015 National Poetry Slam!
We’re opening March with an amazing feature!
21 year old MC from the Bay Area by way of East St. Louis, Jada Imani is a refreshing leader in and contributor to Hip-Hop culture. Her gritty lyricism is informed by midwestern roots where she grew up on the illest underground Hip-Hop pillars. Yet her wavy, ethereal vibe is influence by her residence the west coast as well as her ear for euphoric soundscapes.
Jada is everywhere. She’s rocked at most local venues including the Greek Theater, New Parish, Oakland Museum, Brick and Mortar, Spirithaus, Smartbomb, etc. She has curated over 200 local Bay Area music shows and has performed around the country and world as she travels.
