Malik Work: MC/Actor/Writer is one of New York City's lyrical giants. Mr. Work built his reputation on co-founding the seminal live hip-hop crew, The Real Live Show, with a decade of residencies and performances at venues all over the U.S. and Europe. The group’s sophisticated musicianship—

Malik Work has been consistently ahead of his time. Way before the reality TV explosion, Work and his The Real Live Show co-MC, Stimulus, filmed their weekly residency documenting the duo sharpening their craft as a “hip-hop reality series.” Today, Work continues that progressive spirit with his new mixtape Work In Progress and his groundbreaking Work With The Voice interactive beatless rhymes project. In addition to maintaining a busy The Real Live Show schedule, Work is also expanding his profile with new and exciting collaborations, such as fronting the Parisian-born jazz-hop band Nedjma and developing his hip-hop cabaret concept group, The Upstagers.
