Beautifuuly spoken. A little lengthy maybe, but who cares it's all so true
At 7/14/08 11:47 PM, Jadedsoul said...

Very well done. I like the words and the construct.
At 7/25/08 5:32 PM, Dizzi said...
yea I definitely need to set this for one person at least or have it in my archives!! this was the truth

This was awesome poem! However, it's too long for a message. But it's a great statement to make people think.
At 8/27/08 2:57 PM, triz said...
too long, but funny. haha, ha
At 8/27/08 3:00 PM, triz said...
what shes talking about is not hip hop, dumb fuckn nmoolie, shes talkn about rap. and confusing the two. i used to think hip hop was cool in high school, like talib kwali, mos def, ect, where theres actaully a story, but i like and always will ghetto dumb rap, like master p, lil wayne, cuz it gets me up and crazy. anyway. waht a dumb @@$%%itch.

Rap and Hip Hop are spitting in the face of MLK and the rest of us who marched and died. We asked for the chance to prove that Black Folks are NOT ignorant. The world said, ok, maybe you have a point, turned to the Black Man and said ok, what DO you have to say? - and the answer was yo yo yo... ho, holla nigga... - and the world say Ah, see - we were right all along. Even given a change, they STILL prefer to remain ignorant..

This is the most retarded B*** I have ever heard in my life. The only reason why misogynistic rap lyrics exist, is to clown dumb, clueless people like this one. See ... If she wasn't ignorant, it'd be fun for her too.

Is this someone's actual voicemail? Good message, but don't understand why it is here.
At 2/18/09 9:49 AM, *Anonymous* said...
This is REAL Hip-Hop.Give her a deal the REVOLUTION will be televised.
At 2/23/09 5:00 PM, prp2 said...
Is that Rosario Dawson? Sounds like her. If someone already commented that it is, well just color me stupid for not having read it. Sorry. :-)
At 3/11/09 4:18 PM, *Anonymous* said...
idk that does sound pretty much like rosario dawson (on a side note: damn she sexy as hell!)
At 3/13/09 11:40 AM, *Anonymous* said...
I was searching for a voicemail messagee and I got served a lesson in negatives of Hip Hop. The poetry was great. However, 5 minutes on a voicemail message site was too long.

This one is good, but way too long!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At 5/17/09 8:55 PM, *Anonymous* said...
Whether you like it or not, what this gal has to say is what many feel. Color should not matter......sadly we live in a nation where it did......but how are things suppose to get on track when rappers disrespect others with all that swearing and disrespect of women AND to themselves by calling themselves n***** in their lyrics.......they need to have and show respect for themselves before other will have respect for them. Yes, we are seduced by the music......awesome......but turn the lyrics around, man.........RESPECT YOURSELF!! Don't prove a stereotype!!

True words. Very well spoken. This is too good for just a voicemail. This should be the syllabus for a class somewhere.

Ugh, we all know hip hop is just a commercial regurgitation of what sells: sex.... why waste 5 minutes on a poem that illustrates the obvious.

Hip hop... Rap... same crap... the man simply saw the black man actually doing much in the early 1900s... so what the man do? here you go black man... disrespect your women, don't think, play a sport... hate education... dress like a clown... don't even speak correctly... don't claim responsibility... leave your first child with your baby's momma... sing along these poetic lines with ignorant messages that seem so empty and dull...

Damn!! You are a true poet!
At 2/27/13 9:01 PM, Reee said...
Entirely too long to expect any caller to listen to the end and remember what they wanted to say when they finally get the chance. THAT SAID... it was an amazing poem, and I'm adding it to my Greetings. Why? Because I can listen to it again, and I can play it for anyone in my living room who has the five minutes to listen. I can also set it for people I'd just as soon not leave a message, but wouldn't mind if they enjoyed some spoken word while they were giving up on that mission. Honestly fabulous.
At 3/26/13 9:43 PM, QueenBoo said...
I second Ree's opinion posted 2/17/13. Love the poem and will play it again.
