We’re super hopeful that VerBS is still on deck for Sunday, because he’s the “Awesome Rapper from the Awesome City of Awesome Los Angeles,” which is practically like saying he’s a god worshiped by the scratchings of old records in a turntable kiosk shrine of his very own carved out of granite by the harsh wool of ancient rhinos over the course of centuries.
VerBS has got deep roots in the hip hop scene through Leimert Park and beyond. He’s a Member of DIY collective The FMLY, and he represents Indie Rap Label/Crew Hellfyre Club, headed by Low End Theory’s resident host (and A Rrose in a Prose veteran) NOCANDO. He’s toured with “big” rappers and indie bands, and he raps all over town, from clubs to DIY venues to bike rides to birthday parties to museums and festivals.
But can he HANDLE the challenge of mixing it up round robin style with poets and writers of all styles, ages, and various social maladies?
His name is Kyle Guy and his rap name is VerBS. For more information on VerBS, visit: Http://verbs.bandcamp.com/
Come see him, and more than a half dozen others, at A Rrose in a Prose on Sunday at 2 p.m.!
