Micah Bournes is a spoken word poet, rapper and blues musician. Born and raised in Long Beach, California, Micah grew up heavily influenced by hip hop. He is a brave artist who wrestles with important topics such as racism, sexism and faith. His courage extends to the modes of art itself, unafraid to try new paths in the hopes of finding something new and beautiful.
He sat down to talk with Matt about the massive influence the book Art and Fear has had on his life. Micah talks about how quantity is better than quality in some aspects and the necessity of making bad art. Enjoy!
