Mahogany L. Brown – LadySmyth:Untitled

Mo Browne gives us another inspired collection of poetry with a nod to the Hip-Hop generation with some tight music adding atmosphere to the words. As with her other great CD's of poetry she once again takes on some difficult subject matter touching on love, troubled relationships and abuse, and with the hidden track at the end of the CD, having her words stolen by imitators! This one strong lady who is not afraid to speak her mind.

In addition to Mo Browne, we also get a guest appearance by her partner in crime Jive Poetic on ‘Special Circumstances I’, a great piece touching on a man's abuse of a women. Jive is another poet that you should check if get the chance as he always delivers.

Overall this is another strong collection of poetry with some thought provoking subject matter. It doesn’t beat the live experience, you really need to see this girl live to get the real deal, but it’s a good introduction to her work if you haven’t been lucky enough to catch her in the flesh.

If you’re still not convinced to rush out and get your hands on this CD, you check out a couple of her poems on http://www.myspace.com/mahoganylbrowne
