Taalam Acey

Taalam Acey is telling it like it is. Mr Fishy's review is all fish. Wake up boy, put in your hearing aid, clean your ears. Do fish have ears? Is anybody home or in your fish bowl? If not, clean the fish tank. This is good stuff. Taalam, Keep up the good work.


Today I discovered Taalam Acey. I know that many people do not like spoken word because as Taalam says the money is not in this form of art, but it may be one of the more beautiful. I remember going through different poet and different pieces and trying to find one that related to the parts of America that need the arts the most. Not somewhere where kids go to schools with art teachers and speech coaches but the streets. I went to a school with speech coaches and they tried to help me discover a poet or artist that displays these different points in his writing. The man I found was of course Langston Hughes. Now that I have discovered this poet I may interfuse him into my life and he may be with the likes of Langston Hughes.

Finally LIGHT is beginning to shine

To the person rating it a 1 and saying talk slower needs to get his hearing aid fixed or should layoff the weed. This poet's work is remarkable. If you can't understand what he's saying how can you rate it?!?! I found Taalam on myspace and am in the process of downloading ALL of his works NOW. Very insightful works that speak with a passion and truth that I could only hope to aspire to one day. It's like he takes all of what is good, noble, passionate and truthful and articulates it to those who have always known what they wanted to be or aspire to but never knew how to put it in words. He is a much needed antidote to the minions of thugs (aka sellouts) using hip-hop to destroy a community. He's positive and passionate without sounding like some whiny wuss that let someone cut off his nads and make him a eunuch. He is an eloquent, passionate speaker. A man's man. Insightful and compassionate and vulnerable without appearing weak. I highly recommend him to any hard-head thugs you may know. My only complaint (if you can call it that) about the CD is I would have been happy just to hear the man speak WITHOUT the music. I felt the music got in the way a bit. I know the goal is keeping the listeners attention but I think maybe sprinkles or hits of music vs him reciting over beats would have been more effective. Aside from that I am happily parting with my money on this one. So don't worry Taalam perhaps you will flip the script and poets can bling while gangstas try to scrape by. :-)
