Maya Lays it Down

We are dropping on you the brand new lyric video from the brilliant Maya Angelou’s poetry/hip hop fusion project Caged Bird Songs. “Pickin Em Up” is the fifth track on the album, which was released in November. The late Maya’s poetry was naturally musical, as were her readings. To me this is an organic mix. The video, simplistic and powerful, adds to the painting her words leave in your mind. I strongly urge you to watch, buy and share this stunning piece of work. If you’re already a fan you will love, if you’ve come late to the party you will learn.

Born and raised in NYC, she began her lifelong love affair with music the moment she first heard T Rex. Throughout her life music has always been there … the steadfast fiend with no judgement, always accepting. It nourishes, it angers, it heals and it makes you feel embraced. It is a part of her just as a limb or a lung. If she can bring any of those feelings to people through her writing, not only does she feel she’s done her job, she feels like she’s given them a gift.
