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— and the literate rhymes of Malik, a.k.a. Dionysos, and his co-MC, Stimulus—garnered The Real Live Show critical acclaim. The Village Voice enthused: “If ever a group lived up to their name, it's The Real Live Show. With a distinguished palette of players backing them, New York City purebred MCs Stimulus and Dionysos paint a pitch-perfect portrait of hip- hop's spirit.” The Real Live Show also has the distinction of being the first hip-hop band ever to play the Greenwich Village’s esteemed Blue Note Jazz Club.

Malik Work learned flow stems from his deep appreciation for all written masterworks, and his firm belief that hip-hop lyrics fit into the literature continuum. Currently he teaches a workshop called "Rap and Spoken Word as Performed Literature." This intensive connected the work of classic writers such as Dr. Seuss and William Shakespeare with the lyrics of contemporary hip-hop artists like Biggie Smalls. These seemingly disparate threads of hip-hop, classic literature, and theater, tie in with Work’s well-rounded artistry. He’s written three plays, acted in an off-Broadway one-man show, and appeared in numerous movies. Work will be playing himself in an upcoming film tentatively titled, An American In Hollywood. The movie is set at Nublu and features Work as a character in the movie with a music performance role. Also, his song, "New York City,” will be a theme track in the film.

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.
