Taalam Acey - My Prison/Life



I listen to this masterpiece by Taalam Acey when I feel that lyricism is dead. Taalam is a renowned poet who speaks with conviction and passion.

"they say it's uncommon, and I say nah it's very Common and Talib// and they said, but your like the Jay Z of spoken word// and I say no, I'm more like the Ras Kass and Pharaohe Monch// lyricism is a religion and so I already have everything that I want// and they keep looking for my material possessions, while I possess them with thoughts that haunt" - Taalam
