Expectation Breaker of The Week

Lately, my mission when activating my social media accounts is to follow inspiring and motivating young people from all over the country. I really don’t do it intentionally sometimes, but somehow I always stumble u2dfcecfpon miraculous individuals doing courageous things in their lives. One of my many Instagram followers that I follow, @Black_Market_Exchange has an incredible account that sells “The Black Starter Pack” and promotes black entrepreneurs. Their objective is for young black people to learn about investing in themselves and their businesses. On this page I ran across Brandon ‘B-Rock’ Brockington, IGname: @mr_b_rock, in which @Black_Market_Exchange wrote up an amazing bio on how Brandon is investing in himself andhis culture. It was so dope that I had to highlight Brandon as the ‘Expectation Breaker of The Week”.

Brandon Brockington describes himself as a risky Spoken Word Musician. He grew up in the humbling streets of Baltimore, Maryland. At the young age of 19, he was inspired to remove himself from his neighborhood, which was the stereotypical ‘hood cultured’ environment. B-rock wanted to do something that was bigger than where he came from. Refusing to be a product of his environment, Brockington attended NCA&T, in which he received his Bachelor’s degree. This is where he discovered his love for spoken word poetry, which changed his life for the better.

As a spoken word poet, Brockington became inspired and passionate about perfecting his craft everyday. He performed in Greensoboro, North Carolina and many different parts of the country. In the beginning, Brockington describes his writing material as words regarding his personal relationships, also known as the bad ones. His first spoken poetry showcased his presence and voice as dominating and powerful, as he recited very soulful words. He decided to use his gift as a way to speak on things that may effect everyday people.

Today, Mr. Brockington has written a book on poetry, which will be published soon. He has also produced spoken word music such as, WAR AT PEACE. It is a music compilation inspired by police brutality. Right now, B-Rock is on an East Coast Tour from Harlem, NY to Miami, FL, which will showcase his spoken word material and music. He also produces weekly open mic setups in Greensboro, North Carolina, which allows people to share their stories, music, truths, poetry and comedy.

I love Brandon Brockington’s story. Anyone who follows their dreams and makes them their realities is a person to be reckoned with. A little artistic expression never hurt anyone. B-Rock I hope you continue to do great things in your community, in yourself, and all over this country. We need more people like you who are invested in helping their people. That is a blessing! Stay true to you.
