Movie Reviews

A rip off
Zachariah Ashley | Ferndale, MI | 06/04/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Compared to the other seasons of Def Poetry, this DVD set is a rip off. It costs more, but there are only 6 episodes. In past seasons, they've managed to fit 6 episodes on one DVD, so I'm guessing that the only reason they split the season in to two discs was to make it seem like there's more content than there actually is.

Still, the performances during this season were incredible as always."

"This helped me complete my collection of DEF POETRY. Just as good as the other 5 seasons. I like that different style and people and how they express themselves through spoken word. I have my favorite poets on this show. My man Black Ice is raw and real!"
Be original, create the path.

"Def Jam Poetry Season 6 - has a lot of young poets who are just repeating the rythm and delivery of the poets that came before...very few of these 'artists' are sharing new premises' or new voices..i get it, you were abused as a little girl, i get it, you're a brother from the ghetto, so your a king and you dont use racism as a crutch..and then use it as a crutch...and yes hip hop is dead. and it seems like if you do a wincing inhale during your delivery it equates to passion...and dont forget to walk out barefoot...i think some of these cats need to remember, that it isnt the dexterity of how fast you can spit, but the content of what you spit and the truth behind it...give me some pace and let the words absorb...its not gymnastics...its the skill to communicate your words.

Saddi Khali brings his game to the show and Shihan always brings it.... Vannesa Hidary [ Phd in Him }....George Clinton showing that he gets it...Black Ice is brilliant as usual...Beau Sia ,an incredible performer....Poetri...Suheir Hammad...Lemon...all do it the way it was meant to be done...and ironically all appear on the last show of this thin 2 disc extras, bonus features....just 6 shows....

i'll advise to purchase the DVD, but only on the gorunds that if there is one voice to be heard, then its worth the buy...

As expected...

"Every season of Def Poetry is amazing and Mos Def is like a cherry on top... I am just sad that they have stopped filming the show..."
