About a decade ago - you could see the poet laureate of the streets, the Grandmaster delivering new poetry every Friday night at the end of 7news.

Since then, he's gone on to national and international fame, touring the Americas as a dun poet with books and an album to boot.

But for the past few years he's fallen off the radar - you could say, he got caught up. But he's back with a cleaned off new look and a new DVD. He told us today, how he got over:Ö

Jules Vasquez
"It's been a while."

Grandmaster
"It's been a while, well it's obvious, I dust off the dust, scrape off the rust, I come to move the fungus from among us, you knowm it's just Grandmaster the same in-difference. This is not any tricks, this da no gimmicks, the business I come fix, I tiad a tek them licks, I want you to check out Grandmaster re-mix!

It's just a DVD between me and my brethren Yasser Musa at the Image Factory you know, it has on some live poems, some live reading and some old and some new you know because you have a make a jumpstart, I am back, you know what I mean Jules. The poetry is the same, but all of them is not the same, some of them righteous, some of them unjust, some of them slap you in your face, some of them are love, some of them are hate but we deal with all social issues, you know how I go, I no have no time fu waste time, whe I gat fu tell you, I could tell you best through the poetry and this DVD explain most of it. Yes I've been up, I've been down, I've been all the way round, I've been at the bottom looking up at the bottom and the same when you are at the bottom they say there is only one way up and I am back and I am going up."

"Is there a right time for a wrong time or a wrong time for a right time, or could I be at the right place at the wrong time or the wrong place at the right time, when da your time or my time or her time and his time and this time and that time, the meantime, between time, the good time, the bad time, keep this in mind - all of the above da waste a time, right now da payback time - Grandmaster re-mix"

The DVD is available at the Image Factory or form the Grandmaster directly. You can call him at 622-3730.

Poet On the Rise

Last night we showed The Grandmaster Leroy Young telling you about his new DVD. And while the Grandmaster is the grand-daddy of the streetwise spoken word in Belize - Gildon Rowland Sr is an up and coming talent.

Unlike the Grandmaster, he hasn't got any published books, any cd's or any dvd's. And so while the Grandmaster is trying to get over, Rowland is just trying to get on.

The 34 year old ex-cop told us why he needs your help and why he's worthy of it.

Gildon Rowland Sr., poet
"Everyday life, everything that happens in our community and in the world at large because this is some of the things that a lot of people are not noticing that we need to start to be more focus about the things and people around us so all of the poem that I put aside are just messages of enlighten to the little brothers and sisters out there."

"I have two poems that I had to write like "Mammy Lee Bwoy" that was one that come to me through prayers, and "Conscience" is one that I just recently write on the 22 November last year and one month after that the 23 December my brother got kill. 4 o'clock in the morning something just push me to get out of my bed and start write."

"I prefer to put these poems on CD too because I go by the name Mr. Belizean and its strictly creole I speak mostly and as a result of that cognizant of the fact that people barely read English, let alone how will they read creole and some of us don't really know how to read creole so I really want them to get the message and I am hoping that by Cd, the same way how the listen to music, the poems get embedded in their brain, it's the same way the words could get there and be of the same effect."

If you want to help Rowland's phone number is 626-6230Ö
