    Poe was great to me. I don't like how he used the same concepts over and over again, but he was good.

    My absolute favorite would have to be Milton. Paradise Lost is too great.

    C'mon people, school me a little

    gotta be frost, poe, tupac - they are some inspirations - but then again you have to consider that music is poetry in motion - literally - especially rap - so any rapper could be considered a poet
