Motion to Perform at Knowledge Fest

June 23, 2010

Shouts out to ALL my female MCs, DJs, Producers, Radio Hosts, and what the heck – since I’m in a good mood, shouts out to the video chicks too.  But mainly I gotta hail up the ladies who are doing all they can, when and where they can, to be a positive component in this thing we call hip-hop.  Chicks like my girl Motion, who wears the title of MC, Spoken Word Artist, Radio Host, Mother AND most recently, authoress, who goes in HARD!! 

The last time I saw Motion perform was last month at the all-female edition of Mic’d Up (shouts out to King Jus!!) and my girl TORE it up!! With L’Oqenz on the turntables and Zoe on the live bass, her performance was one of the highlights of the entire evening.  This weekend at Knowledge Fest, Toronto’s all-day, indoor/outdoor event promoting Canada’s Black Authors, she’ll be doing a spoken word performance, so this one is not to be missed!! Her eagerly awaited 2nd book of poetry, 40 Dayz, was released in February 2009, and was descibed as “An entrancing journey through challenge, discovery, and transformation, this new collection is topical, sensual, sometimes provocative, often beautiful, and always engagingly rhythmic.”  Check her out at 2PM at 177 Queen St. West in Brampton.  Also performing spoken word pieces include heronJones, Kevin Brooks, Marcia Williams and more.  The festival will broadcast live on CHRY 105.5FM (York University Campus — www.chry.fm )

Lastly, big ups to my girl Stacey Marie Robinson, authoress supreme and overall cool chick, who will be doing a book signing at the festival!!    Author of the Urban Toronto Tales, and books Video Light, Friends with Benefits and more, you can check her out at http://www.staceymarierobinson.com/ or even better, in person at Knowledge Fest this weekend!

Peace!!

Motion
