Brent and Bryan are two Detroit-based emcees (aka Blaksmith and Mister). The dynamic meshing of their respective styles is galvanized by their inventive live presentations – conceptual, theatrical, almost performance art, altogether curious and highly engaging.

Brent and Bryan, known for their agile wordplay, are recent recipients of the Kresge Artist Fellowship, and presenters at Art X Detroit 2013.
