Some things, good for the soul, you can't get enough of – fresh air, live music, friendly animals, to name a few. The spoken word should be considered one of these things. Also known as slam poetry, it offers something unusual, in that it reintroduces what we often avoid – confrontation. The spoken word demands attention and consideration on a variety of levels. It is this confrontation that Russell Simmons of Def Jam Records has become an expert at providing over the years.

I've alway been a fan Its a shame they (Def Jam) don't push the poetry in the same manner with which they promote comedy. You can always use a side order of soul with your shuck n' jive.
