Hello all. I came across an artist by the name of "Spoken Word."
She is a spoken word artist (hence the name) as well as a conscious rapper. To be honest with you; I don't remember how I came across her site. I love spoken word poetry; and I was glad I found her site. Her poetry is very deep. Her music is tight as well.[yeah, I still listen to hip hop :)] I was so moved by her work, I asked her if I could do a blog post on her; and she gladly accepted. Not only does she do spoken word, she also has a monthly newsletter titled "The Underground". A self proclaimed activist for minorities, I think that's why I was so deeply moved by her works; she's like me in alot of ways, like myself, she's a voice for the voicless. I wish more people who look like me would employ that same mindset; maybe, just maybe we'd be able to make a collective, permanent change in the Black community. If you want to check her out, you can reach her here or here.
You can purchase a copy of her album here. (The page is slow loading but the link works)
