Peace.

Firstly, I made this post here because spoken-word is completely different to the written form.

All Def Jam Poetry / Slam Poetry is welcome.

This is a piece I performed with my bredda (I'm the yout on the right):

I get what you mean, darg.

However, I have a very different tone to the spoken-word in the US. I think... lol.

I don't think so. Spoken-word isn't always in rap-style.

[And my video would get smashed to pieces there.]

I think rapping is a more effective way of getting your thoughts across Cee, i admire your positive attiude toward uk youth though, it takes balls for a younger to go against the consensus.

This is an amazing poem. One of my favourite spoken-word pieces of all time.

Non-rap, too.

Thanks, G.

Let me tell you about that.

On that VERY SAME NIGHT, after the show, this guy (who attended) pulled out a gun on some girl's mother. Shit almost kicked off.

Luckily nothing much happened. Just a heated exchange of words. This was right outside my school.

Peace.
