Women of Marvel Talks Hip-Hop and Afrofuturism With Sammus

Download the latest episode now to hear about Sammus' multi-faceted career!

If you were to combine Ironheart’s brilliance, Shuri’s technological prowess, and She-Hulk’s wit, you might end up with a character like Sammus.

A rap artist, professor, sound designer, gamer, and much more, Sammus does it all. Through music that merges pop culture and poetry, and coursework that crosses academia with Afrofuturism, Sammus is certified Marvel material.

Host Angélique recently called up Sammus to talk about her multi-faceted career, and how her nerdy passions continue to inspire her work.

“I’m always trying to get more Riri, whether that’s Riri Williams or Rhianna. I’m always trying to elevate,” shared Sammus during the conversation.
