As a writer, this Cave Canem alum has work featured The Breakbeat Poets, Coon Bidness, to be left with the body and Make Magazine. Dubbed “sunday mornin jook joint,” his performance and work in sound design merges spiritual and secular aesthetics with dramatic and comedic sensibilities. He has performed in the Hip Hop Theater Festival, Wordstock and Lollapalooza. His latest full-length release, booker t. soltreyne: a race rekkid, features songs and other sound designed created during his artist residency with the University of Chicago's Arts and Public Life initiative. It was during this residency that he worked worked on sound design and concrete poems called "cullud sign(s)." Through voice, sound, visual art and performance, Young is constantly exploring the forms in which poetry can exist.
