Spoken Word Tour Kicks Off

dailynews

The "Underground Poets Railroad" spoken

word tour kicked off last week. The show features poetry acts that vary from

city to city as well as hip-hop artists Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie, Professor

Griff and DJ Jazzy Jeff.

The tour kicked off Hattiesburg, Mississippi

and will stop in Atlanta, Washington D.C. and New York. Producers of the show

held a concert last year that was hosted by P.Diddy in New Orleans. That concert

featured Jermaine Dupri, Fabolous and others and footage of the concert will

be combined to create a spoken word/hip-hop tribute film.

The proceeds of the film will benefit the families

of African-American firefighters who died during the September 11th terrorist

attacks against America.
