TARIQ TROTTER, The Upcycled Self: A Memoir, Discussion
The Upcycled Self: A Memoir on the Art of Becoming Who We Are by Tariq Trotter
in conversation with Jelani Cobb at City Arts & Lectures
Tariq Trotter (aka Black Thought), is one of the most powerful voices in hip hop. He has delivered eleven albums with The Roots and leads the house band on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. His albums outside of The Roots include the three volumes of Streams of Thought, Cheat Codes (with Danger Mouse), and Glorious Game (with El Michels Affair). Trotter co-wrote and starred in the Off-Broadway play Black No More and his many on screen credits include Bamboozled and The Deuce. His memoir, The Upcycled Self, is a riveting portrait of the artist as a young man, and what it means to live an examined life.
All tickets include a copy of The Upcycled Self.*
