GRAMMY NOMINATED ARTIST MAJOR HAS H.O.P.E FOR SPOKEN WORD ALBUM

MAJOR SPOKEN WORD

WORD ON THE STREET IS THAT POETRY IS THE NEW BLACK. WITH THE RISE OF CLUBHOUSE IN 2020, THE ART OF SPOKEN WORD BECAME THE MOST POPULAR ART FORM ON THE PLATFORM BEFORE ALL THE TWEAKS WERE ADDED TO IMPROVE THE SOUND.  

THERE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ARTIST WHO INCORPORATED SPOKEN WORD INTO THEIR PROJECTS. JILL SCOTT PERFORMS HER OWN POETRY ON HER ALBUMS AND ARTIST LIKE THE ROOTS, GOODIE MOBB, KANYE WEST, ROBERT GLASPER, PETE ROCK, MUMU FRESH & 2 CHAINZ HAVE HAD GUEST APPEARANCES FROM POETS LIKE URSULA RUCKER, BIG RUBE, J IVY, QUEEN SHEBA, BLACK ICE, RA BROWN & SUNNI PATTERSON

POETS LIKE SAUL WILLIAMS HAVE HAVE BEEN DROPPING MUSIC AND TOURING FOR DECADES AND THE LIST OF UNDERCOVER POETS IS ENDLESS IN THE MAINSTREAM ARTS WORLD.  MALCOLM JAMAL WARNER IS OUR MOST POPULAR REPRESENTATIVE BY CONSISTENTLY SHARING HIS GIFTS AS AN ACTOR, MUSICIAN AND A POET.

MY HOPE IS THAT MAJOR’S ALBUM IS MAJOR AND THAT IT HELPS GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THE NEED FOR THE ART OF SPOKEN WORD TO HAVE IT’S OWN GRAMMY CATEGORY.  THE LAST POETS, GIL SCOTT HERON & OTHERS DID THE WORK IN THE 60s & 70s AND NOW IT IS TIME FOR A NEW RESURGENCE OF POST DEF POETRY JAM WORDSMITHS TO LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT SPOKEN WORD GOT THEN NOW & NEXT.
