Softer Side of Hip-hop
Poetic Reflections on Love, Family, and RelationshipsBook - 2008
Largely inspired by one woman's journey from teen pregnancy to adulthood, this collection of poems chronicles struggles, successes, and the emotions brought on by both. Often ostracised by their peers, young mothers will relate to the joys, fears, and transitions depicted on each page. Partly base on experiences of the poet's friends and family, the collection paints startling, vivid portraits of such issues as alcoholism, adultery, and sexual abuse.
