Scroobius Pip signing Poetry in (E)motion
Scroobius Pip will be signing Poetry in (E)motion at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2 H 8JR on Wednesday 24th March 6 – 7pm
One of the UK’s most exciting hip-hop artists, Scroobius Pip set his fans a challenge – to create their own visual interpretations of his music, incorporating his pioneering lyrics. The response was overwhelming. The result is Poetry in (E)motion, a collection of the best contributions ranging from rough and ready illustrations to slick graphic design. Timed to coincide with the release of his second album, this is cuttingly aware, street-wise art.
The Independent describes Pip as a ‘mellifluous magician’, a ‘street-scribe, punk poet with pop sensibilities’. Teamed with produced dan le sac, his tight, incisive verse has made him a spokesman for the generation. His first album, Angles, made the top 20 in the UK indie charts.
