Poet Fail

Fail of the Day: Rapper Turned Spoken Word Poet Chokes on TV

It’s understandable that some people get nervous when it comes to public speaking but if you’re going to be a spoken word artist or a rapper then you should probably test yourself out before choking on TV. Enter Marshall Pope, who failed miserably during what appears to be an interview on a public access TV show. Make sure to watch until he actually performs, or lack thereof.

    That one eyed beast and blinking red light will do it to you when you least expect it…obviously it’s his 1st time so I fully overstand the anxiety…hopefully he’ll get another chance to redeem himself b/c this was not a good look at all.
