Multiracial, Canadian hip-hop artist and teacher, Jon Corbin, speaking about music and literature as a channel to explore multiculturalism and identity, Ep. 171

Ep. 171: Jon Corbin (formerly known as The Runaway) is a Canadian hip-hop & spoken word artist with lyrical themes of faith, love, family, social justice, and personal growth.

Corbin is a veteran artist who has quietly carved a niche in Canada’s hip-hop community, collaborating with multiple Polaris Music Prize nominee Shad, Juno Award winner Caroline Brooks of The Good Lovelies, and many other revered emcees on both sides of the border.

Over the past 12 years, Jon has performed on stages big and small, providing a dynamic show that represents the basic tenets of hip-hop: peace, love, unity, and having fun! Jon, who is Multiracial, lives in Milton, Ontario with his wife and five children, where he also serves as a high school teacher who explores multiculturalism with his students through literature.
