The setting for this remount production is current day Brooklyn , NY, where the journey of two brothers play out. Both are rappers but each have their own perspective regarding the industry and world of Hip Hop. It asks the question: "Is hip-hop only about fast cars, available women and flashy clothes? Or is the culture about something deeper, something akin to jazz, spirituals and Shakespeare, a street-savvy, tradition rich portal to the soul?" RHYME DEFERRED by Kamilah Forbes argues for Hip Hop’s higher purpose. This timely piece is being directed by alumnus Sideeq Heard.
