MY DARK SHONE OUT
£5 physical / £3 digital South African rapper Ro, has taken the most vulnerable pages out of his lyrical diary, literally the content too daunting to be released in song, and opened up to expose even more of himself to the fans.
This book poetry mostly follows typical Hip-Hop rhyming form, with a few exceptions. Jam packed full of deep human thought provoking content from Africa to women, love, police, the west, liberalism, religion, depression and of course the common themes of his music, spirituality and politics.
If you are an introspective person or even just somebody tired of dumbed down superficial reads then this will tick your box.
