Who is KING KIMBIT? 

King Kimbit is a literary Hip-Hop artist based on occupied traditionally Algonquin land, interested in telling stories that are authentic to her experiences and identities. Her poetic work details the realities of her upbringing as the daughter of Vietnamese refugees, the truths of her social vantage point as a young racialized womxn-presenting person, and her stance on social issues regarding racism, de/colonization, and gender inequality. King Kimbit is passionate about empowering and encouraging youth, community care, and sharing love and light far and wide through writing, reciting, and the abolition of punitive, carceral institutions.   


Since being crowned Urban Legends Poetry Slam Champion in 2012, King has been sharing love and light through her poetry and music across Canada, the US, and more recently in Jamaica, where she worked in part on her debut album of poetry and musical arrangements entitled "Life Lessons Poetically". King has coordinated Youth Speak! writing and performance workshops for teens and is also 1/3 of the founding force behind Cap City Cyphers, a space for rappers across the city to unite and celebrate love and unity through Hip-Hop. King is currently a writer and vocalist for Speaking Vibrations, an interdisciplinary performance group with tap dancer Carmelle Cachero, ASL poet Jo-Anne Bryan, and contemporary dancer Jordan Samonas.
