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:…
"It's been a while."
"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.
