I can't believe the hip-hop practitioners have already been successful in dominating the poetry scene. It's funny how their arm movements haven't changed. They still look like they are performing a hip hop song number even if they have only been doing straight poetry with not even slight background music involved. They continue to win contests. Maybe it's because their words can be really passionate. Honestly, mostly it's just because of their good looks. I don't know and I don't want to be very quick to judge.
