Boonaa Mohammed - Green Card

Whatever happen to the spoken word artist? It is definitely a dying art form I mean poetry is still being written, but you can only find it in a book. I remember when poets were a dime a dozen participating on every open mic opportunity. I guess nowadays most poets are trying to become "rapper" the two are related but they are not the same. Poetry doesn't need a beat nor do it need to rhyme. Whatever happen to Def Poetry on HBO, man there was a lot of talent on that stage every night. If we don't support artistic expression it will soon go away...remember that.
