King Kimbit is an internationally-acclaimed Hip-Hop artist with a focus on the literary sense, 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 immigrants, the truths of her social vantage point as a young racialized womxn, and her stance on social issues regarding racism, de/colonization, and gender inequality. 


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 Lessos Poetically". King currently coordinates Urban Legends’ Youth Speak! writing and performance workshops for teens and is also 1/3 of the founding force of Cap City Cyphers, a space for rappers across the city to unite and celebrate love and unity through Hip-Hop.

CANCELLED Common Threads NYC: King Kimbit x Eyeda Sophia x Kimmortal x Meditate x Queen Scholar

 —  —

Nuyorican Poets Cafe, 236 E 3rd St, New York

What up New York! Coming to you live from the north side:

COMMON THREADS is a Hip-Hop showcase featuring poetic lyricists King Kimbit (Ottawa, ON), Eyeda Sophia (Toronto, ON), and Kimmortal (Vancouver, BC). Although dispersed throughout colonial Canada, the Common Thread between these three emcees is that each rapper uses their art to speak on and combat the current climate, from racism to misogyny, by creating safer spaces for marginalized Hip-Hop enthusiasts, such as femme and queer folks, to enjoy the art. The north-of-the-border brick, tar, and mortar will be joining forces with familiar New York artists Meditate and Queen Scholar.
