rendall-carltonCarlton is a poet, a rapper and an MC, also known as MC Major Sass, who enjoys performing with Showcase Smoothie, a pioneering literature and music based project that predominantly works with young black men with experiences of mental health issues.

Carlton is part of the Showcase Collective; a group of poets who write and perform together. He started boxing at the age of five and writes passionately about the sport. Carlton recently met one of his heroes; Leicester’s boxing sensation Rendall Munroe, to talk about his career.

You can read quotes from both men in Issue 22 of Soar Magazine which is due for publication next week.
