Bragging Writes: Ketchums x Fluent x Metro Times

Earlier this week, I had a piece published in Metro Times about Fluent, a Detroit emcee/poet/host. Primarily known for his hosting duties at Cafe Mahogany, Fluent is looking to get his recognition as an artist now: which is why the article is titled “R.E.S.P.E.C.T.” An excerpt:

 

 

“At this point, CDs that are classics to my ears [aren’t enough]. I want to put it out there, that I’ve developed as a rapper,” Fluent says. “I have more of a sense of who I am now and how I want to say it. I feel seasoned with it. My style is totally my style, and I feel good about that. Apollo Brown has some really big visibility right now and he reached out to me. Us working together gives us the ability to make a project with a real cohesive feel to it.”

The rest of the article sees him talking about his history, his upcoming projects, and “Words And Rhythms Of The D,” his project with McDonald’s and Music Hall Center of the Performing Arts that seeks to improve reading and writing skills of high schoolers by reaching out to them through music and poetry.
