In his award winning debut book Rhythm and Poetry, the beauty of rap lyricism and Hip Hop influenced poetry is displayed with wit, humour and positivity. His approach is to meet young people where they are and engage them with the style and attitude they are familiar with while keeping his content wholesome, inspirational but still very real. This collection reflects on his journey of growth from childhood to adulthood through the lens of hip hop culture with a great freshness, sincerity and realism. A lot of the verses have already impacted many lives as he travels and delivers them with his unique and energetic style.
