Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen.

0:06

If I could request the resetting of the clock, it's on at four minutes at the moment,

0:10

I presume from the one before... Fantastic!

0:12

Okay! So, my name is Akala,

0:14

I'm from the Hip Hop Shakespeare Company.

0:16

And before we get into the philosophy of our work,

0:19

what that means, what the intention is behind it,

0:21

I'm going to challenge you guys to a little bit of a pop quiz.

0:24

And we've done this pop quiz quite a few times,

0:26

we'll talk about it after we do it.

0:27

I'm gonna simply tell you some quotes.

0:30

One line quotes, taken either from some of my favorite hip hop songs,

0:34

or some of my favorite Shakespearean plays or sonnets.

0:36

And you're gonna tell me by show of hands,

0:39

whether you think it's hip hop or Shakespeare.

0:42

(Laughter)

0:43

Does that make sense? Okay.

0:45

So the first one we'll go for is:

0:47

"To destroy the beauty from which one came."

0:51

"To destroy the beauty from which one came."

0:55

If you think that's hip hop, raise your hands please.

1:00

If that's Shakespeare, raise your hands please.

1:02

Brilliant, okay, that's 70 percent towards Shakespeare.

1:06

It's from a gentleman known as Sean Carter, better known as Jay-Z,

1:10

from a track called "Can I live?"

1:12

We'll go for another one.

1:14

"Maybe it's hatred I spew, maybe it's food for the spirit."

1:19

"Maybe it's hatred I spew, maybe it's food for the spirit."

1:25

Hip hop?

1:29

Shakespeare?

1:32

Getting overwhelmingly towards Shakespeare. Interesting.

1:35

Anyone heard of a gentleman known as Eminem?

1:38

(Laughter)

1:39

He's not Shakespeare.

1:41

That's from a track Eminem did with Jay-Z actually, called "Renegade."

1:43

We'll go for a couple more.

1:45

"Men would rather use their broken weapons than their bare hands."

1:50

"Men would rather use their broken weapons than their bare hands."

1:56

Hip hop?

2:00

Shakespeare?
