Reading: Holy Rollers At BB King's

Something a little different with this post: a link to a poem written by Cheryl Boyce-Taylor - the mother of Malik "Phife Dawg" Izaak of A Tribe Called Quest.

The poem is about her son - and her reaction to the way his performance moved a crowd at a gig she was attending.

Now, regular readers will know I'm no head when it comes to hip hop, so it's no life-long love of ATCQ that's prompting me to post this; as a performer I think it's more than worth sharing. Enjoy.

[Propers to Caits Meissner for the hook up. Take a look at (just!) one of her projects, The Well&Often Reader, here.]
