Performer to offer hip-hop artistry at TU

Tiffin University’s music department is to present hip-hop and spoken word artist F. Stokes Friday in Osceola Theatre on campus. TU’s hip hop group, Mode III, is the opening act.

Stokes is to present a 5:30 p.m. educational workshop, with the concert to kick off at 9 p.m. Both events are free, with the concert for those 18 and older.

Stokes has released four albums in the past five years, including “Fearless Beauty,” his most recent. He has been featured at The Essence Festival, Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, Summer Set Festival and recently was a rap coach on MTV’s “Made.”
