Jamal Carter is an aspiring poet striving to explore the complexities of life through art. At twenty-three, he has already been blessed with numerous opportunities to perform all over Los Angeles County. Heavily influenced by Hip Hop culture and spiritual texts, Jamal delivers messages of great import with undeniable flair. He "spits" with the pyrotechnic style of a Hip Hop aficionado, a clear-eyed conviction afforded only to those who've been around the block, and a command of words both laymen and academics appreciate. Being a layman and academic himself, this soon-to-be educator promises to be a guiding light for the youth in the coming times ahead.
