Featuring 3eM composers' lyrics & anecdotes. Let's make this a forum for your feelings in print. You've heard this all before - in a 3rd Ear Music News Letter about 15 years ago - long before we even knew what the internet was. However, because we studied commix we had a good vision of what the future used to be back then. Rap & Hip Hop is only the thin-end of the poetry wedge. Thanks to Web radio (and soon video) we all now know that it won't be long before your lyrics will be rapped on a poetry hit parade. Everybody writes poems. Think about it!
