Poetry vs. Hip Hop Philly Round 2
Hosted by Internationally Award Winning Poet & Comedian Queen Sheba as seen on Verses & Flow, 106 & Park Apollo Theater and 11-Year-Host Famous 4th Sundays, in Atlanta, hosts this nationally touring show

+ Soundtrack by: International spinmaster DJ Knodat - toured in Germany, South Africa & across the U.S.

*Every single show has sold out! No B.S.

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!

How it works: 5 PHILLY Poets will go head-to-head with 5 PHILLY 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 each other 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. 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 wins 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!) -OR- some Poetry vs. Hip-Hop (PvHH) swag.

At the end of the show: Audience members are introduced to the best Poetry, Spoken Word & Hip-Hop PHILLY has to offer and you will leave feeling empowered and light hearted, cheering, hugging and taking picture 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!)
