Infused with hip-hop, slam poetry and personal recollections, this one-man show charts the ups and downs of muMs’ incredible journey, from growing up in the Bronx to starring on one of HBO’s biggest shows. A life set against the backdrop of the birth of hip-hop, this is the story of a man looking for his spotlight and finding it in the most unlikely of places.
I got a chance to see “A Sucker Emcee” the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it. Before the show even started DJ Rich Medina played some classic songs sampled in various Hip Hop hits. He begins the journey back in time to the beginnings of Hip Hop. From there muMs’ takes us through the journey of his life, starting with where is from and a early childhood rap battle. As the show goes on we see how muMs’ evolves into a man and how Hip Hop becomes main stream. Hip Hop stays a major factor through out muMs’ life. The show provides various life lessons and inspires you to not let fear stop you from going after your dreams.
