Saddi Khali's Performance on HBO's Def Jam

Writing a quick post at the New Orleans Literature Examiner on Soul Series, a new monthly spoken word event on the city's west bank that kicks off tomorrow night with spoken word artists Sunni Patterson and Saddi Khali. Performing on an episode of HBO's Def Poetry, Khali is the poet in the video below singing "I'm Gonna Write a Song That Sounds like Shit," clearly commentary on what passes for artistic expression in music these days, what sells that probably shouldn't sell.
