Legacy: The Cure for Poetry, Hip-Hop, and Spoken Word (Volume Three) is the third and final book of the "Cure for Poetry, Hip-Hop, and Spoken Word" trilogy in which the author, DeJuan Cuffee (Sultan), continues to alter the poetic landscape as we know it. Once again setting the bar high with each poem in this anthology, the author continues to take you on a fascinating journey in which you will get his unique and eloquently stated perspectives on social issues such as racism and politics, themes on love, sex, and romance, well thought out pieces on Black culture and consciousness, as well as everyday life experiences. Other enjoyable reads throughout the book include cautionary tales filled with dramatic storytelling stanzas, pieces on the author's love for his family, music, and sports, or timely inspirational quotes of hope, and reflective passages providing valuable lessons, all delivered with passion and hip-hop inspired lyricism throughout.
There are plenty of highlights to choose from in this book, whether it is DeJuan proudly expressing his love and joy for his lovely wife, and beautiful daughters, his informative passages revealing the treacheries of institutional racism, the sheer suspense or comedy of his cautionary tales, or his conscious voice speaking directly to the Black community. Legacy is a collection of poems that will inspire, entertain, and enlighten the reader, taking them to destinations that allow them to expand their minds, whilst reflecting on life; it is definitely a journey worth taking.
