Osama Thraxxx – “Thoughts” (Spoken Word Poem)
Osama Thraxxx is a well respected artist in the Milwaukee area. He is associated with other local favorites like Big D. His music falls into the category of Gangsta Hip-Hop but it stands out due to it’s mixture of Southern and Mid-West style elements. Which can be accredited to the fact that Osama is originally from Mississippi. He is also the CEO of AnharKist Entertainment and uniquely enough he dabbles in poetry. So thought it would be interesting for him to make his debut on the site via his spoken word piece, “Thoughts.” Check it out below.
(Poem By Osama Thraxxx)
Money is the root to my evil
This was a powerfully crafted piece. It conveys a call to awareness and change by touching on some very intense themes such as: corrupt politics, education, the state of society, etc. The poem is further enhanced by elaborate word choices and standout references. It takes on a purposeful tone that really causes one to stop and think. Overall, this was an enthralling composition.
**My Two Cents: I took a liking to this piece right away. I appreciate the fact that Osama spoke his mind and wasn’t afraid to bring up controversial subjects. My favorite part of the poem is the very last line. It’s concise but at the same time it says a lot. Much love to Osama Thraxxx for allowing me to share his work. Stay tuned to get a feel for what he has to offer musically. -MinM
