In my mind, yes Rap, Spoken Word, and song lyrics are the new poetry.

Although the 'quality' of any writing (or art) is debatable. Then there is conscious rap vs pop.

Although it's old, one worth mentioning isEarGasm - Crucial Poetics Vol. 1. A compilation of rap.

I can't comment on Biggie and Common coz although I know they are 'huge' over there, they are only played on certain playlists here and I don't hear them enough to comment.

Rap, Poetry, Spoken Word, Hip Hop, SMS, it's all using words as a form of expression and that's all good in my book. tfro
