James Langston Hughes.....say what you want....the brother got lyrics. To me a poet is nothing but a rapper.

I don't see the corelation. He is a poet/author true... I would think some of the protest poets of the 60's were the forerunner of modern rap. I think about the Last Poets, Nikki Giovanni, Sonya Sanchez, even Maya Angelou. Langston Hughes is more accessible to academic types in my opinion.

hey 98

if you like Langston, check out the Open Mic at Tha House, 428 Westheimer, every wednesday night at 8pm ($3.00 cover)

hella cool vibe that Lang would feel right at home in (we even play CLASSIC jazz)
