Writing poetry began as an interesting discovery when I was about 8 years old, as I remember I saw an advertisement for entries into a poetry contest in a teen magazine, when I read it I immediately connected to it and thought I could do it, so I wrote a poem about a Turtle. I don't remember what it said but it was bout 6 lines and I received a letter from the magazine saying I had talent although I didn't win a prize I did because I got a rush from creating it that has never left me, over the years I learned the power poetry had over women and how much they loved it, so I would write them to girls that I wanted to impress, it worked on some but others were like "Baby it's gon take more than poem to get dis" hahahahahaha INDEED!
I grew up in Metropolitan Atlanta during the 80's and it was fun and interesting but came of age in the 90's. We always lived in a Middle Class neighborhood except for a stint in middle school were we went to an inner city school and besides that stint, we always had close ties with those that were caught up in poverty situations and struggling. I always felt at home with those that are struggling the most and overcame my fears of tough situations early in life. I have lived thru and witnessed all the pitfalls and drama of urban life and have grown to develop a deep and abiding love for the people and culture, which is mostly talked about in HIP HOP & R&B Music and Urban Literature. I have developed my own unique style of poetry and it continues to evolve, which is the reason we characterized it as "Eclectic" This statement best describes what I do,
"Tight Urban Poetry delivered to a dope hip hop flow, emotionally and intellectually stimulating have you yearnin 4MO.GUARANTEED. Take a Sip."
In my opinion I am "#1 URBAN POET in AMERIKA" and the self proclaimed "Best Urban Poet that EVA lived!" I have my reasons and I think you will resoundingly agree after you read my book, which I put alot of very hard work into, it is a premium product, which is what you can expect every-time we put a project out in the public.
