Rupert Common

Rupert Common aka “Ru-Tang the Veganese Art Warrior” is a Performance Artist and Hip-Hop facilitator from Vancouver, B.C. (Un-ceded Coast Salish Territories). With roots in freestyle-rap, spoken-word and page poetry, Rupert has gained notoriety in Vancouver’s Slam and Battle Rap scenes and established himself as an event host through collaborations with other local artists. It is his passion for dance and music, however, that has pulled him deeper into the culture and allowed him to make connections that a singular wordsmith may have missed out upon.

Ru-Tang currently earns a living by teaching break and Hip Hop to youth and beginner adults, performing in schools and festivals with Project Soul, hosting work-shops, playing weekly music gigs, and street busking. Underlying his art is the desire to bring musicians, emcees and dancers all-together, and to spread messages of social justice and imaginative activism through his lyrics and dance.
