She's no Saul Williams. Not even an Ursula Rucker.

Also boo hoo hip hop sucks in 2008. What else is new?

She's not even a Rappin' Rodney. I'm not going to one star it because she's right.

How many hip hop heads does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Three. One to screw in the new bulb, and the other two to argue over whether or not the old one was better.

She has a point, but she also comes across as holier than thou and preachy. Also, that preaching is to the choir, because I sincerely doubt Lil' Weezy and Dre are listening to slam-poets such as herself. As much as I love socially aware artists, so much of it seems like self-congratulatory masturbation sometimes. At least when artists like Sage Francis and Talib Kweli speak on these topics, they do it over a good beat and try to get it to the audience that needs to hear it.

To quote Brother Ali - "you stressin' that you'll save hip-hop, you couldn't even save a wack party."

what ever made you think hip hop had anything to do with poetic expression?
