I had a chance to sit down with Piper in Oakland California, back in May of this year, to get his insight into how he created this powerful show which shines a light on violence in our communities between Law Enforcement and our Youth. Piper talks about his unique point-of-view as Rapper, Writer, Actor, Police Officer and Activist, as well as, so many other Characters he’s created that represent members from your community and mine across America.
Piper also talks about his upcoming Book, CD and educational curriculum for “Cops & Robbers” aimed at Urban Youth and Law Enforcement due out late this summer. And in part two of my interview with Piper he talks about his band Flipsyde.
“Cops & Robbers” will be at The Marsh Berkeley in Berkeley, CA on Friday, August, 15th @ 8pm and Saturday, August 16th @ 8:30pm and the same times on Friday, August 22 and Saturday, August 23rd; Sept. 5th and Sept. 6th; Sept 12th and Sept. 13th.
