POETRY & HIP-HOP
Although not being a hip hop artist, Morgan states that rappers are “cousins” to poets, and he explained why he chose Lauryn Hill over Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim in terms of being the greatest female rapper in history. It came down to having a superior aptitude for writing lyrics and also being able to perform against any man or woman.
