I wonder how many people actually understand what he's really saying.I wonder how long it will take for this message (no matter who says it) to matter to black people.It should matter. We should care.

Oh my word, that was excellent. More of the youth today need to hear this. What he said was the absolute truth.
Taalman Acey is his name, no kin to Delroy Lindo. Heard him in Milwaukee last summer. "Pieces of Change" is 2 disc set that he has self produced, so please support him.
BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!~Chay n L.A.

Nobody's going to listen to you. Shut up old man. SOMEBODY PASS ME MY "I GOT ME SOME BAPES" mp3.YEAAAHHHHH!!!! I'M A NIGGA!whoever said this should be shot 9 times
damn that was beautiful aand so true black america really needs to hear this
I was filled with mixed emotions as I listened to this. While there's no doubt that I love the message, I guess I'm just wondering now what? Most of us that agree that it's "the truth", "beautiful", "the shit", etc. are already among the many people that believe SOMEthing has to change in Hip Hop.Did this really 'touch' any of the others and make them really think about the negative direction hip hop has taken? I wonder.
This made me speechless, but I'm glad he's not. POWERFUL.
It bothers me when people talk about hip-hop. Hip-hop is a culture and just like any other culture its diverse. Of course it has it's bad parts, i.e. anything produced by Lil John, the Laffy Taffy boys, and so on but it also has its very good. The very good, i.e. Lupe Fiasco, Common, Mos Def, Little Brother, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott etc. are always forgotten and left out of conversations about hip-hop. While some music degrades women and black people as a whole, some uplifts and teaches women self respect and talks about black power. Everything in hip-hop isn't bad and we need to remember that and when people attack hip-hop as a whole we need to be able to defend it. I hope this man is only the beginning of many who speaks out his message.
Word! **snap snap snap**This was hot, Im puttin it on my FB profile!!
for more information about Talaam Acey, please visit his website:http://taalamacey.com/
Damn! I got goose bumps from that. I feel so bad that rap is so much bigger than hip hop, & that's the reason. So many people I know( not me) buy boot legs.Those #'s don't count on the charts. White people buy the $13 dollar CD's, and thats how 50 and these other dudes got so paid. My fav's will never be on the forbs list, or like PE said, never " appear on no stamp"

Those who don't know who this poet is or want to hear more REAL TALK...Taalam Acey is the hardest working poet of our generation, this man travels every week spreading his art. He is highly respected and in my opinion the most inspiring and uplifting poet to our community. Unfortunately not many people have heard his work even though he has 9 CDs, 3 books and a DVD. SPREAD THE WORD!! IT IS THIS KIND OF POSITIVITY AND TRUTH THAT FEEDS THE SOUL! 2 websites with info: www.taalamacey.comwww.myspace.com/officialtaalamacey
TIIIIIIIIIIGHHHHHHHHHHHTTTTTTTTLoved it.... That really feeds my soul!!!!!
That was GREAT!Speak on it.
That was FANTASTIC!!!!!!

I agree with this man wholeheartedly. Only one thing...WE AIN'T NIGGAZ!!!!!!!!!!....nigga.
To quote me..."Those clowns you see are on ON TV BECAUSE THEY"RE CLOWNS!!!". Don't fall for the MTV version of black reality! I haven't heard of Talla Macey until just now, but I am gonna find out more for sure.
