Poetri dating myself

Russell Simmons presents Def Poetry, better known as simply Def Poetry Jam or Def Poetry, was a spoken word poetry television series hosted by Mos Def and airing on HBO between 20.

And I think most people on Def Poetry have won slams or done well in slams.And, all of them, except the special guest stars, the celebrities, are writing slam poems and performing slam poems on Def Poetry, so to me, Def Poetry is still extremely slam-informed, and I think it will probably always be.What they say about Def Poetry is that it wants to bring an urban feel.And to me, they don't mean black or Latino, or non-white.What they really mean is, a rhythm of poetry that comes out of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, that came out of the slams. My hat is off to Russell Simmons, who has found a way to get poems on HBO in a way that feeds his own business.

It gives him the back credentials for his hip-hop label, and at the same time he's magnanimous towards the art of poetry, giving us a place like that.

I love this poet. He writes with a lot of humor. He reminds me that poetry doesn't always have to be angst, tragedy, or even passionate love/longing/desire.
