About the Show Less...

The rhymes are of the time, the reasons change with the season, the beatz are from the street. Read More >

From London to New York to America’s Mid-West and Deep South, this darkly comic play covers three years in the interconnected lives of 10 Britons and Americans, from drag queens to rappers, drug dealers to preachers.

Written and performed by Harold Finley, playing both male and female characters, and set against an original hip-hop score created by New York City’s Illuminati Entertainment, Rhyme, Reasons and Bomb Ass Beatz explores the influence of black and urban culture from slavery to hip-hop.
