Bill Shannon aka Crutch Master Talks About Hip-Hop, Disability, His Dancing & More

Krip-Hop Nation finally interviewed Bill Shannon aka Crutch Master. I have known about Shannon since 1995. I've always wanted to interview him about his dancing, Hip-Hop culture, his disability as growing older, his time in NY in the 80's and his work now. He even turned down a big time mainstream contest show. He made it clear that he loves Hip-Hop but his dance/art is much more than just Hip-Hop more like interdisciplinary dance and now is more into House music but still listens to Hip-Hop.

Palestine Disability Through Political Hip-Hop & Advocacy

Although Krip-Hop Nation is international with musicians with disabilities singing and rapping their politics and life, there are countries that Krip-Hop haven’t touched or are only now making baby steps to get into. We, in America, especially us on the left might know one or many things about Palestine.

Got The Body Blues (Poemsong LISTEN & READ)

Verse 1
Getting older
Breaking down faster
Got the body Blues

Disability speeds up the body clock
Tick tock tick tock can’t stop
Giving me the body Blues

Verse 2
Crack snap pop
Aches & pains
Especially when it rains

Disability speeds up the body clock
Tick tock tick tock can’t stop
Giving me the body Blues

Verse 3
Remedies of yesterdays
Don’t work today
That sucks, I have to say

At night, I’m sore
In the morning, I’m stiff
All day my body is singing the Blues
Better yet it’s hollering the Blues
