Wata (Prod.Mo. Laudi. Mix. Drum) Hip Hop Rap Poem by Kwame Write

Poetry Life and Times

The Title Piece is a selection from the Audio Album Bloodlines listed below, Kwame Write was one of our earliest contributors at PLT, more of his works can be found in Catagories under Kwame Write – PLT wishes him all success with his new album debut. Editor’s Note
 
Bloodlines serves as a revo poetry with music data stream treating a nation like an organ, a continent like a body and the globe like soul. An uncut splurge of visual metaphors forged into recited poetry, ‘some singing’ and fast paced rhythmic rap in fusion with Ghana’s Ebo Taylor and Alhaji K. Frimpong’s highlife chops cooked by ProdbyYungFly and Drumnayshin(who mixed and mastered all the pieces except Woyaaya), live taps by Burkinabe genius Lasso, alternative EDM influenced tapes from Euiv’s Baltimore den and afro house plugs from South African sounds king Mo Laudi by way of Paris. The themes are one and all – based on blessing of earth, water, wind and fire. The artist rants out some social commentary concerning black world modern slavery, water pollution, illegal mining and plastic waste. Also, there’s some folk storytelling and groovy wordplay pieces in there.

That’s Why I Write. Poem. Kwame Write Aidoo.

‘That’s why I write’

My ink flies far when I Orville write..
[That’s why I write]
It’s ideal to open up and let the brains breathe right..
[That’s why I write]

Oprah talks,  Brad Pitt acts, I write!

Weird would the world be without writers..
Like Martin’s assassination story without snipers.
What? No Bible revelations?
No Readers’ digests?
No Quran quotes?
No Daily graphics?
No music magazines?
not even Kama sutra notes?
[That’s why I write]

I don’t tittle-tattle, I’d rather scribble-scrabble
Gossips are short-lived so let my pencil prattle
Poetry paints the state of affairs, affairs of the state
So why keep a glutton crayon by a starving slate?
[That’s why I write]

Born was I the same year noble Soyinka took Nobel award
My manger must have been brushed by his white hair wand..
Toddling, I watched Efua Sutherland weave ‘Anansesem’ with her palm,
Pondering why Kwaku Ananse hid a calabash of the whole world wisdom.
[That’s why I write]

But trifling is the written when never read..
Could we have the Passover without the bread?
So read Shakespeare’s or Blakes’s! Atukwei’s Ama’s
If you’ld read none, inspire…

Keep Moving On. Poem. Kwame Write Aido.

keep moving on
I say
keep moving on
I hear
these grooving songs,
rhythm of the earth playing tap-dance with your feet
keep moving on

tap-dance with your feet

tap
pataptapatap
tap

like a rolling pebble
flung off free fingers
tossing on the streets
bouncing off asphalt
bouncing off like a rebel
rolling under moving cars
rolling through bike spokes
and off through a motor policeman’s legs
swift slow swirl swift soul spell

tap
pataptapatap
tap

keep grooving on

like gazelles grazing
on shrub-lands
at dawn when the orange sun kisses greying grains
where lions dens are dense
keep moving on
like a lion’s dance
before pouncing on a prey
breeze aligning mane

keep
moving
on

like a slum kid waking up with heat rashes
all over a body battered by life’s hardships
bedroom a 6 by 6 packed with 12 siblings
searches for a candle to light his unpaved path
light too low, he sees clouded dreams
sagged low pants,
Dre Beats hanging from his ears
intersecting with a left eye tear
and ride slow jams
and dry cold hands
and mind so tensed

and tap-dance with his feet

tap
pataptapatap
tap

he’s singing
same time praying in his head
he’s singing
praying his music
would top the list
and be the hit this year
playing his music
moving

like a slum kid musician’s tear

keep moving on

like a beach side black boy
biceps like blown balloons
clinging to coconut trees, climbing
like a child on to full breasts
for some milk
slices off the stalk of a coco
a look like a kid gone nuts
balancing boldly
like a dance
breaking it open to take a looooong sip
throws the roughage off
and starts sliding back south
bare arms, chest
sliding like a dance
against the rough edges
one then the next,
brave-heart
grooving on
even when the mood is wrong
he sets sail with his heart
he’s down from the tree
he’s off to the sea
sets snail-step sways
on ocean floors of earth’s palate
under water
plop!
over water
surfing with a piece of plastic
like a dance
rhythm like the tap-dance

and tap-dance with his feet

tap
pataptapatap
tap

keep moving on
even when echoes become walls
and rebound efforts into nulls
even in a free fall
floored, flee all, fly find fortune,
do not fade into the future
like a tear
unattended to
live the present
with the past behind
and bad memories with folded rags
and mistakes with no carbon copies
and smiles within songs
and an open heart
with love as inner decor
bearing hope in hands
reaching for peace

keep
moving
on
