SHIHAN- The Poet
Shihan is one of my favorites. "This Type Love" is an incredible poem about LOVE and the metaphors and similies he uses illustrates how creative he is. He performed This type of Def poetry Jam which basically launchedd his career. Below is him reciting the poem on the show.
Another one of my favorites from the show was Sista Queens- "Try Being a Lady". This is DEF in my top 10. The poem is about how society always Tells Girls to be ladys but what really is being a lady? America paints the picture of what a lady should be like but its not always logical. I love how she recites it and i can TOTALLY relate to the poem and Her. Cuz she bats for my team. haha. =]
