Great writing, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you like to be intellectually challenged and learn from a performance. This is more of a lecture with rap than a theatre piece. But fun, too

Don't see it if you don't want to hear rap or learn about hip-hop culture, culture in general, gender and sex. It is information-packed. But worth seeing.
