Where hip-hop and journalism meet.
This is hip-hop innovation at its best. Past Sunday Spotlight and New York emcee, Shirt makes his return with a new single, “Theory”.
THEORY, is a musical collaboration between MoMA’s first poet laureate, founder and editor of UbuWeb, Kenneth Goldsmith, and New York rap artist Shirt. The beat is produced by the UK’s High Frequency.
Each of Shirt’s lyrics were taken from Goldsmith’s book THEORY, which he printed on a 500 sheet ream of paper and published this past July. This video features photos of 31 pages from that book.
