    has anyone here ever performed at a poetry open mic session? I've performed at a few of them in Kansas City... Poetry open mic's are tight.. for real.. I love getting up and being able to spit my poetry to an audience it's tight.

    I was working my way up through the poetry underground in L.A. under this very same moniker I use in here. I had to cut it short to go home (Bahamas) where I'm much more known for it. Kinda helped start it.

    Headin' back to L.A. doe.

    Largest crowd may have been my first crowd. A few hundred people at Morehouse College circa 1996. Since then, the largest crowd (not including morehouse Underground Live shows) May have been The Poetry Lounge in L.A. doing "Land of the Freestyle". I've been meanin' to hit 'em with my better work lately.
