Poetry in Motion Review of Rapping You with the Facts CD

Although tempting to call Bob McNeil’s Rapping You with the Facts CD a masterful example of urban word slam poetry, it evades classification. Spoken word accompanied with music, his poetry challenges listeners with his expression of social perceptions, painting vivid pictures of relevant issues of our times. The Political Poet gives Rapping You with the Facts, 5 out of 5 laureates.     

“The message is clear, the music is solid and the presentation is strong.  The consciousness in Bob’s poetry is so very much needed today.”Abiodun Oyewole of the Last Poets

“Bob McNeil is a genuine American poet with a feel and the heart to carry the word.” –Danny Simmons (artist/poet)

  1. Bob McNeil creatively paints the art of language like paint strokes on fresh canvas of a genius contemporary artist. He is also like a composer of an aria with or without music. Sometimes just old fashioned hand clapping, a thumping drumbeat, or a soulful harmonica whine enwraps his poems to the melodic moods of his diverse chants, rhythms and verses that illuminate political and social issues. Listen and form your own eclectic opinion of this gifted poet. I can assure you, that you won't come away disappointed.
