How it works: In each city we look for the 5 best poets to side with Queen Sheba on #TeamPoetry and we look for a roving, guest ‘Captain’ of the emcees + Hip-Hop artists to oppose the poets and see who’s got the best lyrics & stage show!
5 Charlotte Poets will go head-to-head with 5 Charlotte Emcees in a FRIENDLY, all Peace and all Love “battle”. Queen Sheba will call up one poet and one emcee for each round, they are REQUIRED to hug (or dap or show eachother love in some way) to emphasize the bridging of gaps and culture – then the Poet and the Emcee performs one at a time; with the order being alternated each round. IE: Round I – if a poet starts, then an emcee will start the second round. Each artist is encouraged to perform their BEST work in a 4 minute time period – then at the end of each round the audience cheers wildly, throws money, stomps on the floor and goes bananas for their favorite performance. The team who conquers the best out of 5 rounds wins!
What do you win?!: Bragging rights! Connections, new friends, networking. Healing people’s hearts. Saving someone from a messed up relationship. These are all the things you REALLY win! And then, you get to Snapchat all your friends and tell them you won your round and your team won the battle! Most shows, the winners of each round gets to choose between a mystery envelope with a small cash stipend (YAY! Chicken and Waffles for everyone!) -AND- some Poetry vs. Hip-Hop (PvHH) swag. …and the losers? Welp… they get something that will help with their careers. (we can’t tell you everything!)
At the end of the show: Audience members are introduced to the best Poetry, Spoken Word & Hip-Hop Charlotte has to offer and you will leave feeling empowered and light hearted, cheering, hugging and taking pictures with everyone! The artists are reminded they are the pulse of their community and are continued to be inspired to produce great works to heal the world.
…and our small, touring, crew that makes up PvHH goes back to our hotel room, or airbnb or someone’s home who was kind enough to house us … feeling fulfilled and exhausted …. ready to plan our next trip! (Hint…hint… this means bring us to your city!)
+ Soundtrack by: International spinmaster DJ Knodat – toured in Germany, South Africa & across the U.S.
