We the Illest
“We the illest”; the familiar words associated with Wordspit. Coming out of the East New York section of Brooklyn, NY, Christopher “Wordspit” Dupree, 25, is a young and focused artist, whose passion is mirrored only by the content of his rhyme and his presence on stage. There is intensity in his eyes; coming off a fairly storied 2009, which sighted controversy in a loss at Brooklyn Bodega’s Show and Prove event on March 19th 2009. It was also a year for the release of a solo project, “The Coolest BBoi Stance” One wonders, what is the next step.
The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, Brooklyn Bodega’s annual celebration of Hip-Hop, something was missing. Wordspit wasn’t on the stage, but in the crowd, he definitely was. “It’s all good man. I had the experience. It wasn’t where I wanted to be. Everybody kept coming up to me like “why you ain’t performing on stage?” Go look at www.Youtube.com tell me why I’m not performing onstage,” Wordspit offers of the successful, yet unsuccessful outcome of the March 09’ Show and Prove.
There was a noticeable growing love for Wordspit. The growth of observers and listeners has become obvious. The ciphers have seen the coolest b-boy going in with and against anybody. The identity has to reach those who don’t know about it.
“I’m Wordspit. It’s way cooler, and I’m not knocking any other names. Wordspit is just some cool shit. I would like to think of myself as the coolest b-boy, which is the dedication to Hip-Hop. I love Hip-Hop. I breathe Hip-Hop. There’s nothing more to be said” says Wordspit.
Songs like “Joystick Madness” shows for the simpler joys and the ability to manipulate anything and create art. Other tracks, like “Poet’s Haiku” show the skill ability and character in the rhymes. Wordspit has come a long way and his stageshow has continued to blossom. “Before you would see me at an open mic and it was good; people would just gravitate toward me. I got with my manager David Hamilton, and we just clicked. We came together, threw our collective thoughts together and we came out with this stage show we have now. It’s never the same. The raw emotions; its just something you cannot fake. When you hit that stage that raw emotion; that’s what I bring,” Wordspit offers.
Effortlessly passionate could be an easy was to describe the artist; the music. One could find him arriving at Hip-Hop events, by himself, throughout the city. He’ll enter the doors, headphones on, quiet with the voice, and the energy of the people around him intensifies. Wordspit offers “I want to put you in that zone; I want you to feel what I’m feeling so you can actually get a sense of where I’m coming from. I think a lot of people just rap to rap and it’s cool to just rap to rap and I say that because I rap to just rap. Yal can see us on 14th St. every Friday just rapping to rap.”
Wordspit genuine feelings are generated from his sound. When music is crafted and your art becomes sound, the people move towards you. “The music is music; it’s what you make it,” says Wordspit. In this industry, the most visible thing in the industry are politics and undisclosed motives behind most actions. It is an ugly industry that will hold you high and tear you down. Music has changed a long way and its major course of changed has been Hip-Hop. Characters have appeared and have maintained that character to the best of their abilities. Wordspit is a very new face that keeps it clear that he is intent on being the illest.
We the Illest!!!!!
