Spoken Word

Truth Be Told

When: Thu., March 12, 8 p.m. 2009

Emcee Rico Pabón has been dropping socially relevant lyrics on the Bay Area rap scene for a minute -- at least since 1994, the year his former hip-hop group Prophets of Rage dropped its debut album Unite or Perish. Since then Pabón has held down emcee duties in the Afro-Latin bands O-Maya and Agua Libre, and recorded two discs of solo material, the 2001 album My Power and this year's Louder than Fiction. This Thursday, Mar. 12, he'll host Truth Be Told, a jam session for hip-hop artists and spoken word poets at Berkeley's La Peña Cultural Center (3105 Shattuck Ave.). 8 p.m., $5. LaPena.org
