Stephtalksproper is an amateur rapper with no background in music. She thinks that a rap career is easily obtained and that she too can be rich, gain social media popularity and access to celebrity. Steph might be on to something but what does this mean for those with actual talent? Who decides what is talent when access to an audience is seemingly available to anyone? These are the ideas I question in this performance and multi-media project.
