If Hip Hop Be A Woman – Author Jody Austin

If Hip Hop Be A Woman

 

If Hip Hop

Be woman

She

Fierce

Would say

Her free flow

Her beat box

Be bangin’

Breakbeats

 

Sounds bringing heat

Running rhymes

Poetically

Raps

Be like

Ella’s swift scales

She would annihilate

Nikki, Kim

Iggie

 

Name-calling

Be ceased

Objectifying be damned

She would elevate

Entire Nations

Raised

 

Daddy’s

Hip Hop

Daughter is born

 

She is Hip

To Hop

History

 

(Hay Na Ku)

Jody About the Author

Jody’s mother was and is still a poet and artist who introduced her to poetry and expressive writing as a child in elementary school. Her bed time stories were of Nikki Giovanni, Sonia Sanchez, Marcus Garvey, Phylis Wheatley, Langston Hughes, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Chavez, Gil Scott Heron, Khalil Gibran, The Last Poets, and many others. She  was a classically trained musician in the earlier part of her life, and performed with different bands and ensembles. Coming from a family background of music it was in her blood.  Her aunt was a jazz singer who performed with many of the greats that include Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie ‘Yard Bird’ Parker. There was always a jam session going on. All of these influences started Jody’s creative writing experiences as a child and throughout her adulthood.
