“A Def Jam poet would never tell you to practice abstinace, practice what you preach, or preach what you practice….” – Eric Vaugh
My Opinion: The poet is speaking the truth, bringing light to issues that really matter, and most of all exposing things we did in the past that didn’t work and still don’t work now. This was a very intellectual poem, I’ve never heard anything like it. I give two thumbs up.
