Adele Nieves just Twittered that she has been studying spoken word and is discovering Queen Sheba. Since I know Adele is a smart chick with good taste, I checked out the You Tube link and...Damn! This poet is...Damn!
Sometimes when I listen to modern urban spoken word, it occurs to me that this artistic medium is hip hop that hasn't lost its soul to bling and booties and commercialism. It is passionate and powerful, rough and real, and beautiful. This is poetry you should know. Listen to this: "We Are the Women" by Queen Sheba.
