For anyone who has ever watched Def Poetry Jam on HBO or who has seen the dvds, this is for you. I have been scouring the internet for some of the poetry lyrics by artists that have appeared on the show, but only a small percentage can be found. However, their videos are all over the net. Because I think it is worthwhile to do, I have taken the time to listen to the videos and type up the lyrics EXACTLY as they are read by the artists. So here they are. One by one I will post them here on this blog. Enjoy!
In NO WAY ARE ANY OF THESE POEMS MY OWN. If you are the poet and wish for me to remove your lyrics, then please inform me of this and I will do so immediately.
