Str3t Poet is an hip hop lyricist that hails from the Westside of Nigeria, Lagos State in particular. I fell in love with music at a tender age when i use to mime and freestyle the songs of artists 2Pac, B.I.G, Nas etc, I started writing lyrics when i was in JS3, I always had plans of been a good break dancer & singer but it all changed when i discovered that i wasnt good at singer so i started learning the art of rapping by building up wordplays, metaphors, and sick lyrics.
I Str3t Poet wanna blend hip hop and lyrics from its origin with urban influences, I have created a highly original genre of African hardcore/street rap music performed in both English, Igbo and Yoruba language. My lyrics are loaded with universal and street messages, complicated by hardcore vocal performances, I have describe by one critic as "one of those who has come to redeem the image of rap music in Africa" and he gave me the name "African 2Pac".
