DATED EMCEES by Chinaka Hodge

Cool poetry book about rap and love. My two favorite poems are the ones about Tupac (“2pac couplets: one line for each year he lived) and Biggie (“small poems for Big: 24 haiku for each year he lived”). They’re like the Oakland version of Nas’s song “We Will Survive.”


Also–my book about dating as a single mother is available at the Montclair Book Center and on Amazon and in person if we cross paths.
