CD Reviews

Mutabaruka Rules.
I Congo-I of DUB FOUNDATION | USA | 11/10/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Dub poetry is the business of original thinkers. If you're not passionate about what you're talking about, don't even worry yourself, you're no poet. (Clear themes, clarity of verbal delivery, a message that is deep and useful to the whole of the world. As a dub poet, your goal is definitely not money or girls, on the contrary, its to make the world a better place for every one. To become a dub poet you need to have thought deeply about life, and the human story. If you cannot do this and you stil want to record your stuff on CD, you bette find someone to help you compose some useful lyrics. However the verbal delivery will still be flat, because the message won't be yours!So I'd say on my list of REAL dub poets I have
1. Mutabaruka (the topmost universal revolutionary poet)
2. Linton Kwesi Johnson (the originator/urban UK poet)
3. Oku Onuora (Yardy Communistlike poet, man of the poor)
4. The late Mickey Smith
5. And last but not the least a (USA/UK based) guy called MC Ras Tee"
