Poet for the proletariat 

You’ve heard emcees rap about their cars. You’ve heard them rap about their chemical vices. You’ve even heard them rap about the crimes they’ve committed, the cities they’re from and the groups that they represent. Less commonly do you hear rappers talking about homelessness and politics and the impact that they’ve had in their lives. That’s what’s unique about local rapper Poet: He’s not afraid to open up about the hardships in his life that some of his contemporaries might find embarrassing. Wouldn’t Views from Rio Grande make for very interesting content?-Keith L. Mcdonald
