If you like what you see, and not everyone will since their work is highly politically charged, you can look them up on YouTube for more. Or, you can see the two of them, and other spoken word artists, on HBO's Def Poetry.
In our collection we have The Spoken Word Revolution: (Slam, Hip Hop, & the Poetry of a New Generation) edited by Mark Eleveld [811.508 SPO], which is a book and CD combination. We also have some spoken word artists represented in our children's collection with a new book/CD, Hip Hop Speaks to Children: A Celebration of Poetry with a Beat edited by Nikki Giovanni [J 811.54 HIP].
Listening to poetry performed is an experience not to be missed.
This week's Poetry Friday Round-Up is being hosted at Big A little a.
