Amir Sulaiman is my favorite poet doing it at this point. His love and willingness to speak to The People is what connects me to him so much. He's Hiphop. But he's also carrying the tradition of a long lineage of scribes and griots who know their history.
Sulaiman is simply a giant in the world of poetry. Not only can he emcee and command a beat with the best of him, when he's gone acapella is when he's most powerful. i'll let the video speak for itself but it is worth noting how underrated this man is. Simply the best!
