Poets Off The Endz is a small group of people based in Nottingham, curated by Jah Digga. Starting off as a Youtube channel, and evolving into Instagram and now hosting events across the country. Each artist invites you to listen to their perceptions of life and experiences in an intimate form of modern poetry. Combining this traditional art form that dates back centuries with real people and happenings of today, has seen poetry enter the urban culture over the recent years.
Our friend Ling Ling, who we recently did a shoot with (which you can see some of the images from on our instagram, shot by @darnellnugent) had a go at her first spoken word with Poets Off The Ends recently, and we were blown away.
Spoken word is always going to leave people with different afterthoughts on what they perceive the artist to be discussing. For us it had a very clear and powerful message at the end, with topics of self awareness, socialism and the environment throughout.
Watch the video below to hear what she has to say.
