Yo Mama’s a Heaux
You might be one of the many people who say, “I like all music. But not country.” If that’s you, you’re about to discover a whole new meaning of “red neck.” Meet Hyperphlyy.
Hypherphlyy is Danica, Trea. and Devynn, three women from Poplarville, Mississippi who moved to New Orleans, look like a million bucks (each) and are re-writing the Book of Expectations. Nothing about Hyperphlyy is what it looks from the outside.
On the subject of not judging a book by its cover, there’s no way you could tell by looking at Alicia Cooke that she’s had more adventures than anyone you’ve ever sat next to in a bar. Alicia lived for two tears in a part of Niger where was the only foreigner and everybody else spoke a strange language called Zarma. Zarma isn’t a written language and most words are onomatopoeia. In this conversation the folks at the table score 100% on Alicia’s Zarma vocab test.
Lecco Morris visited New Orleans a few months ago and within 3 hours and one sazerac decided he was never leaving. Lecco has taken up residence as a street poet and it looks like he’s going to be as good as his word. Lecco is building a poetry empire, called Ragtime Poetry. Throughout the course of this entire show Lecco manages to keep his shirt on (not as easy as you might think).
