This is a compilation of poems and spoken word pieces from actor/poet and iconic Asian American figure, Dante Basco. These are some of the poems that helped start the spoken word movement in Los Angeles in the early 90's. He is the founder of DPL- Da Poetry Lounge (formerly Dante's poetry Lounge") which is the premiere poetry venue on the west coast and the largest weekly poetry venue nationwide. These poems paint a portrait of a young artist in the sometimes crazy city of Los Angeles living the Hollywood life. It's all about life, politics, love, sex and Hip Hop.
