WHEN WE LOOK AT THE OG'S WE FIND THAT IT WAS NOT THE VIOLENCE THAT WAS THEIR MOTIVATION IT WAS THE INJUSTICE OF A SYSTEM IN WHICH THEY WERE BEING ROBBED A MONEY AND ESTABLISHING THEMSELVES AS A GROUP OF PEOPLE.

Tommy Bottoms is proving himself to be one of the most prolific spoken word artists
of our time. His brilliant word play, powerful voice and witty socio- political
commentary has amazed crowds from Los Angeles to London. His ability to appeal
to both the common man and academicians alike has made him a favorite among
poetry circles and universities around the world. Tommy Bottoms spoken word
ability can be summed up in one succinct word--genius.
"We have been accused of making economics cool. But compared to this Def Poetry Jam
performance by Tommy Bottoms, we are bush league. The piece is called 'Basic Economics',
and to my mind it is as well-written as it is well-performed. If I were a high-school economics
teacher, I'd use it in my class....I'm nominating "Basic Economics" as the all-around
