Wordsmith – Conscious-Commercial Hip-Hop

Wordsmith is the always-professional, ever-expanding, world-wide movement based out of Baltimore, MD.  His mission is to entertain and educate through a Message of Purpose, and always by example relate that message through clean, quality, and marketable Music for the Masses.  The emcee from Baltimore looks to represent his city on national and international stages with his Conscious-Commercial Hip-Hop and theatrical stage shows. Free of profanity, full of message driven content and fun for all ages Wordsmith’s music is considered blue collar to the core.

“Most stories about the american dream either begins at the bottom with the world watching your rise to the top or we witness the unfortunate fall from grace. Whether it’s movies or music, the grey area, the backbone of our very nation is taken for granted. The Middle class is the engine that keeps America running in a time where wealth and high fashion is glorified.”

Making great strides in the independent music scene Wordsmith was accepted into the Grammy voting committee due to his numerous songwriting credits over the years.  His label NU Revolution Entertainment is recognized by his alma mater Salisbury University as a certified alumni business. Major accomplishments include a recent feature in the Baltimore Sun Newspaper Fall Arts Guide, joining forces with Armed Forces Entertainment for a 19 day overseas concert tour that included bases in Djibouti, Qatar, UAE, Kuwait and Bahrain.  Wordsmith followed that up by joining the Maryland leg of the Special Olympics Unified Relay Tour, garnering features with CBS News Baltimore WJZ for his role in the inaugural Light City Baltimore, DC Spotlight Newspaper and selected out of 300 ensembles to take part in the upcoming American Music Abroad Tour the American Music Abroad Tour sponsored by the US Department of State!

For Wordsmith, music is a constant balance of art and business where to be successful means always looking to further both at once.  NU Revolution has capitalized off Wordsmith’s good reputation and growing fan base by securing professional clothing sponsorships with local outlet Route One Apparel and international outfitter Rude Boy Clothing.  Wordsmith and his NU Revolution brand are steady growing with the help of these new business partners.

Wordsmith has made charitable contributions a pillar of his NU Revo label and performances are just the beginning. For four years running Wordsmith has been the performing artist for students at local inner-city schools for the annual Red Day festival sponsored by Open Door Baltimore and Keller Williams. Recently Wordsmith started entering middle schools to deliver Anti-Bully lectures/performances along with joining Baltimore based homeless shelter Project Plase to feed and provide gifts to their clients.
