For Your Consideration is a celebration of brotherhood. A two-decade tutorial in spoken word craftsmanship mixed with ‘Black Boy Joy.’ It speaks eloquently on fatherhood, depression, relationships, home and street life, childhood trauma, love, and heartache in a way never touched before by any artists. After multiple sold-out shows in Oakland, CA, and Hollywood, CA, Prentice & Shawn have taken their two-man show on the road with a 16-city tour across the country, to promote their new Live Album “For Your Consideration,” while showing the world what levels can be reached when words mix with passion.
In collaboration with SIA, FYC'24 is proud to announce a new clothing line.
- Our Story -
Prentice Powell and Shawn William’s first time on stage together didn’t start in brotherhood, but competition. They met outside the legendary Black Box in Oakland, CA, practicing their craft and noticing each other’s work ethic. After that magical night, the bond formed. That bond has turned into a 20-year journey of friendship and a professional relationship, featuring on stages and platforms individually and together around the world.
As individuals, Prentice Powell and Shawn William have laid a solid foundation for many spoken word artists to follow but together, they are not only electrifying - they also push each other to raise the bar. Their chemistry on stage is not only mesmerizing it’s also heartfelt playing off each other perfectly.
Prentice Powell approaches every stage performance from London to South Africa polished, precise, and professional - sharing his gift while allowing his art to speak for itself. Prentice has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, The Roots, Sevyn Streeter, Anthony Hamilton, Faith Evans, and alongside his fellow Fiveology members, opened for Jill Scott during her Summer 2013 tour.
Prentice is a distinguished member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, and he is the only spoken word artist to have appeared on all six seasons of Versus & Flow.
