CRASHprez
CRASHprez
CRASHprez originates from a moment during the summer of 2010 when he almost passed out from dehydration at a poetry event in Baltimore (earning him the CRASH) and a nickname from the nurse at his elementary school who always made sure to encourage him (earning him the prez). CRASHprez is a navigation of the dance between the dangers of Black skin and the bliss of that existence in defiance of being a target for the world to feast upon.

CRASHprez is an art project by Michael Penn II. The mission is to dispose of the boundaries of what can be classified as hip-hop, while interrogating and frolicking in humanity from the perspective of a suburban Black boy in the United States of America who finds the world so beautiful and so evil at the same time.

There are eight CRASHprez releases. The latest is “more perfect.”: an album co-released under CATCH WRECK and the Mishka NYC imprint based in New York City. “more perfect.” is the second piece in a four-part saga of CRASHprez releases known as “The Campaign.”; “fear itself.” is the first piece in the saga, executive-produced by *hitmayng.

CRASHprez has shared stages with Chance the Rapper, Danny Brown, Ab-Soul, PRhyme, RiFF RAFF, Lil B the Based God, and many others. He played the Revelry Music & Arts Festival three times in a row, and played Freakfest twice: on the Gilman Stage in 2012 and the Frances Stage in 2015.

Michael Penn II is a 22-year-old MC, poet, journalist, curator, and teaching-artist from Fort Washington, Maryland. He currently resides in Minneapolis, MN. He is a graduate from the 5th Cohort of the First Wave Hip-Hop and Urban Arts scholarship program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with a degree in Journalism/Reporting. His music has been featured on Noisey, Pigeons & Planes, DJBooth, HOT 97, HotNewHipHop, Daily Chiefers, Cypher League, and The Isthmus among others. His journalism work can be found in VICE, Vinyl Me Please, TrackRecord, and Tone Madison among others.
