Yo, Crank Up the IP! - Hustler

Author Kirby Fields
New York, New York

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION 

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: A man stands on a street corner and hollers to anyone who will listen to him about the riches that he believes he is owed.

Subject Matter: Intellectual Property (IP!), Hustlers, Music, Beatboxing 

Note from Playwright: This monologue emerged from reading many articles about various producers who are legendary for their "beats." I connected that idea to the longstanding point of view about different art forms that look so simple that "anyone could do that."
