Prince Paul will be taking his Negroes On Ice play to select U.S. venues in the coming months after the piece premiered in New York City last winter to a sold-out crowd. Negroes On Ice stars the acclaimed hip-hop artist, who triggers the score he wrote for the play live on stage. Other actors include his 19-year-old son, Paul Jr. (aka comedian P Forreal), and rapper Talent Harris. The play is directed by Ego Trip co-founder Sacha Jenkins and was produced by renowned promoter Peter Oasis. Oh, and the reason for the name? “We wanted a name that would make Richard Nixon roll over in his grave,” Prince Paul said. You can view the dates below.
