Leave it to this slam poet professional turned iconoclast hip-hop artist to craft a “spoken word tour” backing his latest book, Chorus: A Literary Mixtape. The show, swinging through Boston tonight, will likely feature the Slam (film) star’s signature blend of frenetic poetic rambling with grunge-style musical accompaniment. Or … not. Could be something totes different, if we’re honest. That’s kinda what you sign up for with a “slam poet professional turned iconoclast hip-hop artist.” Leave it to you to figure that shit out. Um … you’re welcome?
