Billy Woods' Terror Management Release Show
Age Limit: 18 and Over Billy woods is a rapper who defies easy categorization; he claims Washington D.C. as his hometown but has spent much of his life in New York City. He was born in the U.S. but spent much of his childhood in Africa and the West Indies, the second child of a Jamaican intellectual and a would-be Marxist revolutionary. On the mic, woods is no less of a conundrum, possessed of versatile flows and an ability to not only tackle topics other artists wouldn't dream of, but also to bring unique perspectives to the familiar ones. On his latest album, Terror Management, woods weaves past, present and future into a dark tableau as hilarious as it is macabre. This is a place where skeletons spill from closets, lead pours from faucets and the punchline is the whole joke. This is the sound of the police not coming, of garbage trucks in reverse, of glaciers shearing off into a black ocean. But these are also tales of perseverance, compassion and love, however quixotic. Of snatching one's humanity from the fires that rage all about us. Terror Management rounded out a stellar 2019 for the enigmatic MC as a follow-up to the acclaimed Hiding Places with producer Kenny Segal.
