Multi-talented rapper, author and slam poet George Watsky represents the new school of hip hop, first coming to international attention when he won the Youth Speaks Grand Slam Poetry Competition in 2006, going on to ride the wave of a huge internet and social media following after his self-penned and self-produced video for 'Pale Kid Raps Fast' went viral in 2012. His already blossoming career was further bolstered by his work and appearances on popular YouTube web series Epic Rap Battles of History, paving the way for solo stardom when he dropped his breakthrough sophomore album Cardboard Castles in 2013.
2020 sees Watsky gearing up to bring fresh material to cities across North America on the mammoth Advanced Placement tour. Expect that trademark rapid-fire rap delivery, intellectual, emotionally honest lyrical content, and hook-laden melodies that speak of Watsky's strong writing prowess and penchant for well-written songs.
