Ugh, African Queen! African Queen! SMH. I'm no slam poetry fan because affected cadences and pauses sometime take the place of substance and skill, but I dug the first sister's piece.

I'm no slam poetry fan because affected cadences and pauses sometime take the place of substance and skill....Ditto! Gosh, I hate this stuff. Okay, once every blue moon I actually hear something I like. But, often it just reminds me of that James Brown song, "Talkin' Loud and Sayin' Nothin'."There's a promo for VH1 Soul where the women starts a spoken word-like flow that ends, "Soul music is life." I usually shut that shyte off before she gets that far.
When the McCain woman says that "Obama will certainly not be President where I come from, why should he be President of America?", what is that supposed to mean?
Hilarious! And, I too, cannot stand slam poetry for the most part! Glad I am not alone!! Phew, now I may develop the courage to admit that I enjoy Mary J.'s music, but her singing skills are still sorely lacking.
