Poem-cees: Some of DMV’s finest

Share Button

If there was a version of De La Soul that I could say that honestly was from the DMV (or an extended link to the Native Tonues even), Poem-cees is very close to it. From the time they put projects such as I.O.U. Street and Paranoia to link with fellow DMV artists Priest Da Nomad and Storm The Unpredictable forming SPP Waxworks, these brothas stay busy. Known for their back and forth beatbox performances and slam poetry approach to rhyming, they’ve been prominent in the DMV scene for their originality.

Okay, if they don’t look familiar…..peep this bit from Def Poetry Jam…..

Aiight….now that thats out of the way, time to put you on some more game with their new album, “Everything You’ve Always Wanted” coming out this year. Not sure when but it is this year.

Here’s a sample from the album entitled “Honor” feat. Smokey Temptation (the voice may sound familiar, LOL)
