Philly-born poet, Ursula Desiré Rucker knocked ‘em out of the box with her debut album, Supa Sista. Intricately weaving words with music on her sophomore effort, Silver or Lead, she cracks her whip on unsuspecting and complacent ears worldwide. Kicking knowledge on everything from womanhood to slavery, to love, sexism, politics and more, Ursula redefines spoken word with her trademark socio-political urgency and sweet “song-speak.” As one of the architects of Philadelphia’s poetic revival, Ursula landed in the spotlight far before slams and Def Poetry Jam made headlines. Following in Supa Sista’s acclaimed footsteps, Silver or Lead boasts even more provocative music and word fusion.
