Poetry and Hip-Hop have always had a close relationship. After all, music is basically just poetry tailored to a beat with a hook thrown into the mix. A lot of artists even got their starts via the literary world and then transitioned over into music. So it comes as no surprise that a poet would find inspiration in a rapper. This is the case for the latest selection by Milwaukee based expressive soul Tiki Da Poet. As she is a fan of popular yet controversial underground/indie rapper Tech N9ne, she was moved to dedicate a piece to him. Find out what she had to say in honor of the peculiar Kansas City emcee after the break.

Especially for those in a lower economic class. It’s the reason that the constant thoughtless spending of celebrities ruffles so many feathers. Tiki Da Poet is one of the people who shares that sentiment and has hopes for a better monetary future. She shared her thoughts on the matter in a poem titled “To Be Rich.” Check it out below.
