Kool Keith Versus James Joyce

By Dianna Dilworth Comment

For aficionados of classic literature and hip hop music, there is a new game for you. It’s called, “Who said it, James Joyce or Kool Keith?”

Hudson Hongo explains the idea: “One is the most innovative writer of the 20th century, the other is James Joyce. Can you distinguish between sentences written by the Irish novelist and the lyrics of surrealist rapper Kool Keith?”

The ten question quiz will have you scratching your head. Here’s one for you: “I do indeed in greed, explore, meet the patients. Back to brooms with the nurse with the voodoo curse.” Joyce or Keith? You have to take the quiz to find out. Share your score in the comments section.
