Description

Hip-Hop is the biggest youth culture within the history of the planet rock. That is the primary poetry anthology by and for the Hip-Hop generation.

It has produced generations of artists who have revolutionized their genre(s) by applying the aesthetic innovations of the culture. The BreakBeat Poets features 78 poets, born somewhere between 1961-1999, All-City and Coast-to-Coast, who’re creating the following and now movement(s) in American letters.

The BreakBeat Poets is for those who love Hip-Hop, for fans of the culture, for those who’ve never read a poem, for those who thought poems were only something done by dead white dudes who were given lost in a forest, and for poetry heads. This anthology is meant to expand the theory of who a poet is and what a poem is for.

The BreakBeat Poets are the scribes recording and remixing a fuller spectrum of experience of what it means to be alive on this moment. The BreakBeat Poets are a break with the past and an honoring of the tradition(s), an undeniable body expanding the canon for the fresher.
