Bertrand E. Boyd II is a creative writer, spoken word artist, and actor from Miami, FL. Though inspired to write as an adolescent; it wasn’t until the age of 17 that he found his love for the performance aspect of poetry and the spoken word. After hearing a live performance from notable poet, Will “Da Real One” Bell, Boyd dove head first into the literary world with Bell as his mentor. His inaugural stage appearance came within that same year at the North Miami Literary Café’. A tribute to his youth and quiet offstage persona, he performed under the moniker, “Da Youngsta”.

 

With his talents no longer concealed, word of Boyd’s literary brilliance and unique stage presence spread swiftly and further than he expected. He was anonymously invited to open for the “Laugh Out Loud” Comedy tour in 2005, sharing the stage with comedic heavy hitters, Don “DC” Curry, Sommore, Arnes J., and Sheryl Underwood. In 2006, he took the infamous stage at Showtime at the Apollo in NY, winning back to back shows. Boyd, though just a teenager, seemed to effortlessly dominate his local literary scene, and has since been invited to share his talents both nationally and abroad, performing to sold-out crowds and standing ovations.

 

Boyd continues to grow and evolve and is emerging as a literary renaissance man. In 2009, he graduated from Benedict College with a B.A. in English and a B.A in English Literature from the University of South Carolina. Since the untimely death of his mentor in 2011, he wholeheartedly believes that a torch was passed. In the spirit of keeping the flame alive, Boyd keeps several irons in the fire. He currently serves his home city, Miami, as a high school English teacher. He is founder and CEO of Scrap Paper Inc., an organization committed to teaching fundamental life and language skills through spoken word/poetry workshops to middle and high school students, especially those who tend to be overlooked or disregarded. Through his passion and word of mouth, this literary initiative was embraced by several schools throughout the area.

 

In 2011, Boyd made his acting debut in a film called Between the Ropes. Since then, he has been featured in more than a dozen films, one of which, Avaricious, was showcased at the world renowned Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France winning “Best at Fest”. In 2017, he was featured in the controversial video for Kodak Black’s “Tunnel Vision”, directed by Michael Garcia. He is currently filming a new series, Murder Gardens, expected for release in Spring 2018, and has begun to script a home-based series through which he also plans to make his directorial debut. He continues to soar to new heights through his poetry, now integrating live music into his performances.

 

 

Bertrand Boyd is a man determined to break barriers and cross boundaries. He is both student to his craft and mentor to his community. He is poet, actor, writer, teacher, mentor, and more, but nearly all that he aspires to accomplish is rooted in the po
