Talib breakin it down with the Poetry Jam

Ok, I'm gonna slow it down for this post. To me, this clip is moving, captivating, and powerful. Talib Kwali's poem on the Def Poetry Jam is called "Hell", and it describes his view on the world, religion, and the many misconceptions that we encounter today. Straightup, this poem spoken by Talib hits me... it hits me because I agree with every word that comes out of his mouth. And I guess it's encouraging to me, to see that others feel the same way I do. I appreciate this piece more and more with each time I watch it.
