Featured Poets: “HUEY Gang” is a music collective based in the west side of Chicago which was founded in 2009. Led by founding members Stark, The Law, and Leader Lockwood, the group is a collection of Hip-Hop artists/emcees, poets, producers, fashion designers, open mic hosts, youth mentors, and community activists. The acronym, “HUEY,” stands for Headstrong Urban Educated Youth, which perfectly coincides with what the group represents and the messages they share in their art.
