One of the UK's finest poets, Dean Atta, is about to meet one of the toughest challenges of his career and discover the gritty truth about hip hop's last taboo: the gay rapper! The openly gay poet, who has traveled across Europe and won notable awards for his work, takes on the role in an hour-long documentary to discover whether the world of hip hop is honestly ready to accept homosexuality. Check out my interview with Dean for Time Out - Here.
Thank you to Georgia Anderson for getting me involved in this project. I was asked some simple yet really tricky questions which I tried to answer as honestly as possible. Taking part really brought up some strong as well as fair opinions that made me definitely think about the issue in a different light. Enough about that though you'll hear what I have to say on there, so TUNE IN!
Will be aired tonight at 9pm on BBC 1Xtra.
