Musical Guest: Carnage the Executioner

Terrell Woods, a.k.a. Carnage The Executioner, is widely recognized for his lyrical dexterity, abnormal freestyling ability, and uncanny knack to compose musical symphonies with his mouth through human beat boxing. He teaches both private and group beat boxing lessons to youth in community and school settings, extensively covering the fundamentals of beat boxing while adding in components of basic rhyme/rap-writing structure. Carnage graduated from Hamline University, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Today, he is not only a father, but is also a freelance social worker, mentor, community volunteer, motivational speaker and counselor to youth and adults in Minneapolis. “A lot of kids have feelings of hopelessness; I set an example that you can make a difference in your own life and make it better with lots of determination, regardless of how negative your surroundings are. I feel I have a responsibility to give something positive back to the community that helped me become the man that I am today.”
