Description

Tha Spoken Word Joynt on CD

Devynity, born Devyn Wray, began writing poetry in the 6th grade. She first hit the stage at age 14 after her mentor, Barbara Bethea, introduced her to performance poetry. While attending the prestigious LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts, Devynity began performing at small local venues. Devynity won best young poet at The Hottest Poets venue in 1998. She has performed at the National Black Theater, the African Poetry Theater, the Nuyorican Poet's Cafe, and the Langston Hughes Library. She has also appeared on the hip-hop radio show 'Off the Top' 1240 WGBB, appeared twice on the QPTV/BCAT television program 'Caribbean Classroom,' and has been featured on the PBS show, 'Souls of New York.' She has opened for N'dea Davenport and performed with Malik Yoba. She was also a 2002 Grand Slam Finalist and a 2002 Nuyorican Slam team member, which ranked third in the nation amongst 53 other teams. Other than excelling in the realm of spoken word, she is also a dope mc. She has flexed her skills at the Pyramid's Sunday cipher, End of the Weak and competed against 1000 other emcees in MTV's first MC Battle. Besides her performance skills, she is also making a strong impact in the world of education, imparting her knowledge of hip-hop and spoken word on students of all ages. She has given workshops at schools such as Tito Puente's School of the Gifted in East Harlem and Bronx Prep Charter School. In a world where female emcees have to sell flesh and empty promises, Devynity is the embodiment of lyrics, talent, and beauty.
