Cold Lips 05 was a short run print edition put together over a couple of nights by editor Kirsty Allison to bring together content from the past year. 50 copies were sold and (largely) given away at gigs in Berlin and Prague. Thanks to all contributors.
Malik was introduced to Kirsty by Nina Zivancevic, the Belgrade-born writer, who hosted her in Paris, to perform at some of the nights that Malik hosts, including Paris Lit Up where he is Poetry Editor.
His recent book, Collected Raps, covers twenty years of his writing. From Oakland days, to Brooklyn, before settling in Paris. We reviewed in Cold Lips 04.
Here, he shares a rap that responds to Kirsty’s words on the forthcoming Vagrant Lovers album.
