ofcourse you can ...didnt seem like a lot of people here like hip hop thats why i only asked them, but glad u enjoy it also.
That is a nice list of people u have seen, i would have loved to see Kanye and Snoop
Yeah I've noticed not many people here like hip-hop, oh well.
I'd love to see more, but being in England (and more precisely Liverpool) it's often hard to find concerts other than those of the more mainstream artists if you like.
yea i am fortunate enough to live in Brooklyn and Mos Def and Common are always just showing at ramodom spots either speakin there poetry of actually performing.
My boy holds a party called "Spoken Word" where u resite ur poetry infront of a lot of people..a lil scary at first...i've done it twice, never won, but just fun to do...just fun and educational to hear these amazing people and there words.
Damn, would love to go to Brooklyn just for that reason.
Like Def Poetry Jam? :P post some of your stuff! (if you write that is)
And yeah I agree Lewi T, I live in Kent, closest place is London, and it's only the mainest of the mainstream around these parts.. (cept the odd lucky concerts).
Sweet, I look forward to it! I used to write quite a bit.. but my laptop screwed up and I've lost almost all of it :/ all I've got left is a first draft to a verse a wrote for Crazy by Gnarls Barkley (love the remix to that btw with Joe Budden), and a storytellin' few verses I wrote with a mate when I started out writing, acting as characters of black criminals robbing a bank (original), not quite sure where that is, might pop 'em on here sometime, probably could do with a revising, haven't wrote for a good year. I just write notes now and then when lines come into my head.. should probably get back into it.. maybe should try yourself Lewi?
alright i just wrote a lil somethin right now..not all that good but just off the top of my head...here we go....
I walk my streets
and see kids gettin beat
over sh|t that means nothin
while supposed gangstas stand there frontin
holdin there heads high
while there morals are low
people just dont understnd
that these gangstas are just show
walkin around packin there heat
but we all know theyd really get beat
see life is not about pullin the trigger
life is about which man is BIGGER
I'd love to hear [read] both of your stuff like...I've never really thought about writing, but I might have a try! I just need to get started somehow, I'll give it some thought throughout my days and see what comes up!
Edit: ^nice man, I can't wait to see what you got at home!
Wow Bliss, baring the mind that came from the top of ya head, that's pretty dope. And yeah Lewi, when I first started writing, I'd write stuff like Lil Wayne and Big Tymers etc.. :P stuff that was just stupid..
I remember most of my '1st draft' of my Crazy verse off by heart. Can't remember what I was talking about in it, but nevermind
Implantations of this world need some time for preparation/
Mutilation of this world ends my mark with an exclamation/
Going crazy, over the way they contemplate/
As a baby, didn't think nothing, just dranke and ate/
But just maybe, maybe this world has some good of mankind/
Thoughts intertwined, I urge some peace of mind/
I find, people overstate the wrongs and not the situation/
They act like things are right when there is sheer discrimination/
If only, they could seek the attention that they sure crave/
And maybe, yet a close shave, they'll be able to avoid an early grave/
That's all I can say/
Can't remember the rest.. would have more meaning, if I could remember the meaning :/
