Core Rhythm, whose real name is Mtume Gant, is already well known as an actor. His credits include Carlito’s Way: Rise to Power and HBO’s hit television series Oz. Lately, however, he has become more known as Core Rhythm, super emcee. A native New Yorker hailing from uptown, Core’s been a mainstay in the city’s underground scene. He has shared stages with the likes of Wordsworth and Breez Evahflowin and collaborated with artist such as GrandMixer DXT and Baba Israel. All of this has lead to the release of Core’s first full length album, Nat Turner Reloaded, an album he calls “a new form of sonic protest.” Fresh off the heels of his album’s release I sat down with this fascinating individual to get to the core of Core.
