  1. Wonder if Anderson Paak got thevideo concept for "Bubblin" from this.

  2. I got an opportunity to see him perform MONEY at NC Blumenthal Performing Arts in Charlotte, NC in 2007. He is great!

  3. If that is your real name I believe you are here for a purpose. You are BLESSED I respect you as a poet I have been washing your poems for a couple of months now. I enjoy your listening to your words, funny, serious I am true fan.

  4. I love all of his work!!! you are so crafty and clever and talented

  5. I am a teanager and have watched just about all his poems 4 times each. One, because they are funny. Two, because his poems just never get old.

  6. Such a clevely crafted poem plus he has a sense of humour. Love this.

  7. was introduced to Def Poetry and your work back in '07 by my sophomore Literature teacher in high school and have been a fan ever since!!!

  8. The single realest poem I have ever heard. lol my money has been acting funny too.

  9. Awe… but seriously… you're one of my favorites I listen to that puts a smile on my face. I have been writing most of my life but I'm too shy to perform/recite it in front of large crowds. How did you get over your stage fright(if you had it)?

  10. YAYYY!!! Glad I could…it's the least an appreciative fan can do. Keep smiling hun 🙂

  11. Ahhh, you are too kind. You just put a big ole smile on my face. Thank you.

  12. I loooove Poetri I watch this video and can't stop smiling thinking about the very first time I saw it (when it first aired) OMG!! God bless you love 🙂

  13. I totally miss Def Poetry Jam!!! Poetri is awesome!! Enlightening and entertaining

  14. I tend to watch def poetry in search of some deep philosophical shit, not to say your writing isn't multi purpose, but I got side tracked from my bitter quest by all your poems, and they lifted my mood considerably.. respect from Australia

  15. @kamkam30 you don't need help to start writing, you just need to start writing..
