Spoken Word and Hip-Hop

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 1, 2013, 6:06 PM

Speech rules our daily  interactions: from the job we hold to the friends we cherish and who we respect and follow. Most of the time, we fail to realize the total impact that words have on our psyche, personality, and poise. Instead, people tend to gravitate towards those who speak like them, whether that criteria is based on vocabulary, accent, and/or individual tones and overtures.

Spoken word and hip-hop arguably stand as the two primary forces of the power of speech. Countless examples exist that showcase the influence the two concepts have on both moral actions and human accountability. The duo inspire countless thousands to speak up and let their ideas flow. Moreover, both spoken word and hip-hop push the predetermined boundaries that society leaves upon itself and encourages listeners to set out upon their own paths. Both movements push people to dream, create, and inspire others to pave new roads to success, to allow others to break the glass ceilings that are placed within their flights, and to abolish any and all self-doubts that they will fail to accomplish what they set out for.

The following videos were compiled in an effort to inspire others to let their imaginations soar and to encourage them to listen to their hearts and let life go where it may. The artists and poets below are shining examples that one should never forget their dream.

Without further ado:

"551" by Dessa

"I Try (feat. Mary J. Blige)" by Talib Kweli

"Scars/To the New Boyfriend" by Rudy Francisco

"Mind Playing Tricks on Me" by Geto Boys

"Poem Postmarked for the Middle East" by Usman Hameedi

"Freedom Ain't Free" by Brother Ali

"Dear Straight People" by Denice Frohman

"The Room We Hide In" by Grieves

"Homcidal Rainbow" by Kai Davis

"Searching for Some Beautiful" by Sadistik

"Ten Respones to the Phrase 'Man Up'" by Guante
