Narrating Rap: UVA's Hip-Hop Workshop



The community of Charlottesville was immersed in Rap on Friday, October 28th when both Mickey Factz and Professor A.D. Carson (famous for providing his dissertation in the form of a rap album) presented a Hip-Hop workshop/showcase at the city’s Jefferson African-American Heritage Center.


The content of the workshop correlated with Factz’s Pendulum Ink curriculum - an academy designed to educate aspiring emcees across the world on lyricism, the music business, and the history of the culture. Professor Carson aided in this while also giving insight into his University’s Rap Lab - a classroom space where he takes students on a journey to create their own mixtapes by the end of the semester. The event closed out with a showcase of the community’s local talent and an all-out cypher involving any guest that felt inclined to drop a verse!
