Def Poetry: “Erykah Badu”

This woman right here is just too profound! Erykah Badu has been killin’ the game ever since she released her first album in 1997 “Baduizm.” She is currently working on her 6th album “New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh).” Aside from music Erykah Badu is also a great spokenword artist, I’m not sure of the title of this piece but its one of my favorites her preformance was so unique peep the poem below.

Also check out this video of her preforming her song “Annie Dont Wear No Panties” Ms. Badu is def a badd chick pow!

Def Poetry Spotlight “Children of a Lesser God”

Any true lover of spokenword is a fan of the HBO series Def Poetry Jam, thanks to the internet many of the performances can be found on youtube. From time to time I will be posting some of my favorite performances here at SpokenRap. Today’s piece was preformed by Jamacian born activist Deb Young. The piece is called “Children of a Lesser God” and it is about a young girls struggle with keeping the secret of her rapist whom is her uncle. The piece is so powerful and Deb does an outstanding job performing this is truly a memorable piece check it out below.
