The Poetry Question

Discovering the Relevance of Words

The New Voice of The People…?

I know I’ve posted about this before, but since he’s about to be all over GQ Magazine, I figured I’d pose the question once again:

Is 2chainz the new Bob Dylan? Is he really the new voice of the people?

@poetryquestion of course, it’s already all around us right now. Dylan and Chuck Berry lives through 2 Chainz.

@poetryquestion @2chainz the very best poetry can be used in everyday language. To create wild emotions from Lego blocks, is hard to do.
