Yevrah, a Hip-Hop/Neo-nusoul Emcee out of Saint Paul. Born in East St. Louis, IL, his politically charged music speaks on injustice and traumatic tragedy that black communities face without aid. Through his art and his mantra, “The vulnerable youth became everything,” he tackles concepts that get people feeling and shines a light on the many different ways to deal with past traumas with a “vulnerable youth become everything” perspective.

 

Yevrah is a featured artist in the April 2019 event Art Is… My OriginArt Is… My Origin is a sneak peek into the most sacred of creative spaces – home. This segment will explore those living- room, basement and bedroom practices of freedom that led to the discovery of voice. It will look at blackness across difference and art, specifically music and poetry, as an intergenerational connector and catalyst for liberation.
