Tell Me Yours (spoken word) | @whatisjoedoing @prophiphop @humblebeast

So one of my favorite artists, Propaganda of Humble Beast, issued a challenge to make a poem in similar fasion to his poem titled “Tell Me Yours” on his “Crimson Cord” album. So this is my submission to the “Tell Me Yours” challenge, where I give a short account of the people who have contributed to my life in ways knowingly or uknowingly. I’ve been wanting to write more lately, so I saw this as a perfect opportunity to get back to writing.

He says this about his poem, “This track is almost like a family portrait book. A memorial of all that makes up, my “cord”. I see that my life has been shaped by normal, everyday working of life. People, places, mistakes, tragedies and triumphs. Things that I saw as coincidence were really evidence that a plan was being worked out, a path that has made me into the person I am now. So this piece was special for me. I realize you probably didn’t know most of the people or places, but they are the reason why I am what I am.’

THE RULES ARE SIMPLE:

Write a spoken word in the style of “Tell Me Yours”.
Shoot a video of you performing that piece.
Upload that joint to your personal Youtube channel and make sure that you add #TellMeYours hashtag, tag @Prophiphop and @humblebeast in the title.
Once the video has been uploaded make sure to email us a link to your video to info@humblebeast.com for us to review it. Deadline to submit your video is November 25th, 2014 at 11:59pm.
Share that joint via social media using the hashtag #TellMeYours to start getting views and likes.
We will choose a first and second place winner. 1st place will be an Editor’s Pick – This will be chosen by myself along with a few poet colleagues of mine and we’re going to critique ya’lls work and pick the hottest poem. 2nd place will be a Viewer’s Choice – this one is simple, the one with the most views on YouTube wins, so make sure you promote the heck out of it. Winners will be announced on November 28th.

Please watch, like, and share as much as possible!

I’ve been wanting to write more lately, so I saw this as a perfect opportunity to get back to writing. I wrote this about 2 or 3 days ago. I feel like I rushed the performance because it was 30 degrees outside and we were FREEZING!!! Lol. Shoutout to Reconcile for helping me shoot this piece.
