I found this piece and decided it was too good to not showcase it. It exemplifies exactly why I feel there needs to be a home for spoken word in the hip hop culture. Unfortunately, it seems that the art form has not been acknowledged when it comes to rap music. Rap is just that, Rhythm And Poetry, right? Watch this video and tell me if I'm wrong.
