Speak Easy 6: Poetry and Hip Hop

There has been no bigger influence on contemporary poetry than hip hop. It’s difficult to see where hip hop begins and spoken word poetry ends. But despite all their similarities, academics still argue whether rap is poetry. This month on Speak Easy, Elaine Foster speaks to Malaysian hip hop artist, Jin Hackman, and spoken word poet, Sheena Baharudin, about poetry and hip hop.

Produced by: Tina Carmillia and Kimberly Lee Chui Teng

Presented by: Elaine Foster
