Heyyy! It’s Kuya P AKA Patrick Michael Strange and I recently had the pleasure to sit down and talk via Zoom with Hip Hop Artist & Educator, See More Perspective! A real dope convo! An amazing and talented dude! Check it out!
Xicanx writer, producer, and performer SEE MORE PERSPECTIVE has been described as a “Chicago Institution”, “Walking creativity” and “The hardest working, most unjustly slept on artist in the Twin Cities”. As an artist and educator committed to liberation, he’s dedicated his life to studying, creating, teaching, and performing hip hop, spoken word and social justice. See More creates in various capacities across disciplines as a solo artist, collaborator, producer, and music director. He’s collaborated with and produced music for nationally renowned artists including Slug of Atmosphere, Olivia Gatwood, Kevin Coval, Kyle ‘Guante’ Tran Myhre, Sierra Demulder, Neil Hilborn, and Idris Goodwin. See More has also had the pleasure to share stages with Umar Bin Hassan of the Last Poets, The White Stripes, Brother Ali, Ded Prez, Sage Francis, and many others.
In addition to writing, producing, and performing for over two decades, See More has been teaching hip hop, spoken word, and social justice for fifteen years, working with students and audiences of all ages from all over the world. Most recently, he has been on artists rosters for TruArtSpeaks, COMPAS Arts MN, East Side Arts Council, and the Minnesota Prison Writing Workshop. He has served on the board of the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, participated in panels for the Cedar Cultural Center’s Cedar Commission, and is a member of the Northern Spark Program Council. He is also a recipient of the 2013 VERVE Grant from Intermedia Arts, 2017 Cedar Commission from The Cedar Cultural Center, and was a semi-finalist of the Saint Paul Challenge for the Million dollar idea to make Saint Paul Great. He most recently received an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board for a music video series of music videos promoting consent, healthy sexuality, and combating of rape culture.
