About the author
DeJuan Cuffee (Sultan), is an author/poet and the founder of Black Sultan Productions. DeJuan is a devoted husband, and proud father of two beautiful daughters. DeJuan has been writing poetry for several decades, writing poetry is one of his biggest passions only behind his family, and love for music. Throughout DeJuan's academic and professional journey, his passion for poetry followed, whether it was obtaining his B.S. in Business Administration from Old Dominion University, or his MBA in Management from Western International University, or spending four years in the Army, eight years as a government contractor and now currently working for the federal government, his poetry was always right there every step of the way. DeJuan's style of poetry is polished and intellectual, yet abstract; and he possesses an acute sense of rhythmic writing, to go along with an endless imagination, and very reflective voice. He is often described by readers of his work as an excellent storyteller, with ingenious wordplay, and clever concepts. DeJuan's poetry covers a vast array of topics and themes, to include protest poetry on social issues such as racism and politics, well thought out pieces on Black culture and consciousness, and themes on love, sex, and romance. He talks about everyday life experiences, provides inspirational quotes of hope, expresses his love for his family, music, and tells cautionary tales (short stories), all with hip-hop inspired lyricism throughout. DeJuan is one of the more proficient and prolific poets of his era, continuing to craft jewels on a regular basis. Aside from writing poetry, DeJuan loves spending time with his family, listening to his extensive music collection, reading, watching television, going to the movies, and cheering on his San Francisco 49ers.
