Next week, Dice Raw of The Roots is hitting the stage, headlining another run of his latest production, "The Last Jimmy." A hip-hop satire, "The Last Jimmy" tackles the emotionally-charged subject of mass incarceration of African-American males in the US. The hip-hop musical odyssey travels through the plight of the court experience of young African American males, and the American prison system expressed through song, music, and dance. 

The production was written by Phillip Brown, includes original music and lyrics by Dice Raw of the Roots Crew. Dice Raw’s highly-acclaimed concept album “Jimmy’s Back” is the centerpiece for this entertaining and thought-provoking production.  

A popular and present artist on the Philadelphia music scene, Dice Raw raw's signature style of rap was first heard alongside Philly's famous hip-hop band, The Roots. Dice made his industry debut on the hit track "The Lesson, Pt. 1." And soon after, he made a name for himself with his distinct cameos on "Adrenaline" and "Lockdown," where his hard-hitting style worked perfectly alongside the heady rhymes of Roots frontman Black Thought.

Along with Dice Raw, the production features a stellar lineup of Philadelphia talents, and after the Friday night performance audience members are invited to stick around for a post-show talkback discussion.

We last saw this show last fall, during it's near sold-out run at the New Freedom Theatre — a Philly institution which has a rich history training generations of black creatives and giving voice to the African-American experience through theater. 

For this run, "The Last Jimmy" will be steps from Philadelphia's Avenue of the Arts, staging the production at the historic Prince Music Theater on Chestnut Street. Don't miss this groundbreaking work featuring many of Philly's best and brightest talents on one stage.
