About the artist
The foundation of the name- Wordz- embodies the physical image of truth that resonates fiercely from the artist's poetry, rhymes, and song. Influenced heavily by Hip-Hop Kulture, the "Z" in the artist’s name is said to symbolize the “endless and non-stop”, a degree of “HipHoppa” awareness that only true Hip-Hop heads both recognize and appreciate.
Performing live in the bellies of heated ciphers or on the brightly spot-lighted stages of concert arenas, Wordz' stage presence and performance, indeed hypnotic, proves to also be purely natural for the young artist. Often compared to Hip-Hop artists Common, Nas and Mos Def and most recently Kendrick Lamar, he delivers an impressive sound that is both rare and refreshing.
With the completion of 8 original albums and presently working on other independent recording projects, he is featured in numerous local open-mics, showcases, and concerts throughout the US. Wordz the poet emcee has also been featured on many TV and radio shows both locally & nationally, including “Philly Word Live” and "106th and Park.”
