Once upon a time, 15 year old Ink joined AS220’s hip hop group the Rhodeshow, setting him to become a prominent underground artist and teacher on the east coast. Since then, he has traveled the world, facilitated media residencies on behalf of programs like Carnegie hall and NPR, competed in the World Beat Battle twice (placing in the top 8), and has received co-signs from top producers including Just Blaze, Mannie Fresh and T-Minus. An original thinker and trendsetter, Ink works tirelessly to push the culture forward in a positive and progressive way.
Ink’s rare performance will be released as a live EP available on all streaming platforms on March 5th at Inktheurbanmyth.com
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in hundreds of events at AS220’s Empire Street venues being cancelled. Since it isn’t possible to gather for shows, AS220 Live Arts is bringing performances from local artists directly to you to watch from the comfort and safety of your own home with“AS220 Streaming Sessions” – high quality multi-camera, multi-track, live-streamed or pre-recorded weekly performances! AS220’s LIVE ARTS performance spaces are unjuried and uncensored forums for the arts,offering every artist residing in our small state the opportunity to perform or present their original work at our venue. If you are a performer interested in setting up a Streaming Session, especially if you had an event cancelled at AS220 due to the pandemic, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The pandemic has also tremendously impacted artists and AS220 financially. To support our streaming sessions and the artists participating please visit https://www.as220.org/streamsupport to donate.
