Review:

"These poets seize us with rhythm and passion. They give us romance, realism, comedy, and politics. That's entertainment!"
-- New York Times

"Stunning, startling, amazingly now."
-- Ntozake Shange

"What a lot of people don't know is Broadway itself emerged from uptown cabaret from rent parties....You belong. Yeah, Def Jam Poetry Rap. Hip-Hop Nation. You belong."
-- Nikki Giovanni

"Def Poetry Jam shows that when you present black and Hispanic kids with literature that has something to do with their lives, they'll pay attention."
-- Ishmael Reed
