Serious Rap Sh*t Podcast & DayOneNotDayTwo at Night Tours

Included with admission to Night Tours: Summer Twilight.
Every month during Night Tours, we feature programs around a new theme. August’s theme is “Creativity,” and we’re celebrating with a special series of live musical performances in The Fair Chance Beer Garden.
On August 19 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm, join us for a live podcast recording of the Serious Rap Sh*t Podcast featuring special guest, and a live performance by, artist DayOneNotDayTwo.
Serious Rap Sh*t is an award winning podcast that covers rap, hip-hop culture and the weekly shenanigans of the two hosts John Morrison and Josh Leidy. This live recording at Eastern State Penitentiary will focus on the impact that mass incarceration has had on rap music and hip-hop culture.
DayOneNotDayTwo is an artist, activist, and entrepreneur based out of Philly who uses his music and platform to inspire, empower, and transform the community. DayOneNotDayTwo served 8 years in prison starting at the age of 17. Since his release a year ago he’s been working with the Youth Art & Self Empowerment Project and the statewide Care, Not Control Coalition to end youth incarceration in Pennsylvania. His debut album was released 2/2/22 and is titled My Father’s Chains. The project consists of 11 songs that illustrate the sociological impacts of the criminal legal system from a perspective of ancestral trauma and healing. DayOneNotDayTwo continues to transform the culture of hip-hop with Ascension, a creative writing program that pays local artists to create community centered content.
This program is made possible with the support of the Pennsylvania Abolition Society.
