    a throwback video of me doing poetry

    (my friend edited my gov't name out...lol)

    it's funny how 12 YEARS LATER...i STILL gotta preach the same things...but i LOVE my people....hope you guys enjoy!

    you ALL AGREE with my opinion, which is why NONE of you ever EFFECTIVELY DISPUTE IT

    you ONLY have faith in the WOMEN'S ability to ELEVATE which is why you only FOCUS ON WOMEN...you ALL have long given up on Black men

    you just don't have the BALLS to OVERTLY AGREE....rather just do it INDIRECTLY

    weak men only can deal with weaker women

    in the presence of strength you diminish...

    I only listened to the first poem and this is what i think about it:



    That poem was very very nice....I was vibzing with you right that minute.

    I want tuh hear some positive sh*t too....and too bad the sisters weren't listening even 12 years ago about the process hair being a result of their processed minds...they done took it to another level.

    Well done.

    my voice is my power....that's why i intimidate many...gimme a stage and a mic...and it's a wrap

    like i said in the other thread yesterday.....the poetry scene is very male dominated...and most females was doing poems like this






    seemed very "victim-ish" to me.....i felt like i had to come from a place of power...i was more on some Black Ice shit



    when they was scouting for this show...they cut the sound on my mic...i guess my voice was too "deep" for a female...stepped off the stage and Black Ice was like "damn sis, you got a lotta shit with you"....lmao....i will never forget that moment....mind you, i toned down my political voice, and did a breakup poem.....i just wasn't a victim in the poem

    nope...haven't read her book....back then i used to buy poets book out of mere support but never read them....

    funny thing.....i was watching some madame noire videos on youtube where they had a panel of men discussing relationships and such....i then ran into the one of the men at a lounge here in bklyn and spoke to him about the videos...he gave me a flyer to one of his upcoming events and i looked at the name and i was like why does the last name ring such a strong bell to me when the videos only referred to his first name....when i went home, i went thru my books of poetry i never read, and lo and behold, it was him....we had did a show together like 13 years ago...and i didn't even remember


    but poets love when you recognize them and their work...a simple acknowledgement means a lot....next time, speak.....she is very talented...she blew my mind first time i saw her....i consider her a freestyle hip hop artist more so than a spoken word one
