Outspoken Wordsmiths and City Prophets
Sat, Jul 18
Old Firehall - Lethbridge
Hip Hop


The Outspoken Wordsmiths are a bi-coastal pair of beatboxing pirates who've taken to shore to spread their a-cappella antics & circle-(A)-political poetics by any means necessary.

This high-energy power duo has traveled extensively across Canada, performing live shows that incorporate spoken word monologues, spontaneous beatbox jams and freestyle rhyme sessions alongside tightly-rehearsed numbers showcasing rapid-fire lyrical exchanges set atop seamless vocal percussive soundscapes -- thus earning themselves a reputation as a versatile, crowd-pleasing act that leaves audiences thirsting for more.
the City Prophets are City Prophet Entertainment began as a seed, loosely planted by the art of Hip hop and society itself, a flower sprouted out of the concrete where nobody expected to see such raw talent. It all began on a stage at St. Francis Junior High School, where a young Urbn Voyce showed the small town of Lethbridge that rap was not defined by the colour of your skin, but by the beating heart that keeps you going. Busting out freestyles in the hallway, a young 14 year old white kid attracted the attention of plenty of people, including a kid who would grow to contribute to the foundation Urbn Voyce had already layed down. The young Lrev looked up to Urbn, and they began freestyling everyday, kicking rhymes even when people told them to shut up. The streets knew that a new scene was being born. Lrev and Urbn Voyce first performed together on the stage at their school talent show, blowing the crowd away with a song that they eagerly wrote the night before. City Prophets came from years of performing and sharing stages with the likes of Red One, DL Incognito, The Game, and many other North American artists that DJ Booda brought through town. Many Mc's contributed, and the crew was made of friends and family, which began to grow to a crew that would be recognized throughout the city as the best hip hop Lethbridge had seen yet. After opening for Classified in 2007, the crew came to a crossroads, leaving it in shambles. CPE Broke up but it would only be temporary. In the spring of 2008, Lrev, Urbn Voyce, and New Age made City Prophets a crew once again. Now refined and alot more managable, CPE has been doing shows all over southern Alberta, and is looking to make it big. Unsigned and ready to blow, it would be stupid to not keep up with these guys, because their going to inevitably put Bridgetown on the map. Keep It Real, We aint goin nowhere.
