Adam Felman – our poet in Norwich!

Adam Felman is a keen battle rapper, MC and poet.  Originating from Southend, Essex, Adam performed at Sundown many yearsAdam Felman ago back when we put on regular events in the ballroom at the Royal Hotel.  We caught up with him again recently through his now infamous Youtube rap battle with fellow poet, Mark Grist.  ‘Battling’ is believed to have originated in the New York scene in the late 1970s.  Today, hundreds of ‘battles’ take place all over the world.  Felman is a performance poet and MC who can normally be found freestyling at a rap battle, he’s also known for his comedy songs and witty hip-hop (wit-hop anyone?) style.  He can be seen at battles going by the name of ‘Mos Prob’ up against his opponents.    We’re very excited to be taking a Southender poet with us on tour to the Norwich Arts Centre, a vibrant wordy town at a venue known for its spoken word shows.  Here’s a little taster of Adam going head to head at a battle…
