Michelle Muir’s debut poetry collection brings a new and confident voice in the hip hop genre to the printed page. Muir’s poetry skillfully blends the language of the contemporary urban environment with her personal take on African-Canadian rhythmic and polyrhythmic style. The playful candence of her voice leaps from the pages of Nuff Said, compelling the reader forward on a wild ride through music, life, education, community pride, love, erotic desire, political irony and probing questions of race, class and gender.
Michelle Muir (aka Nuff Said) was CBC Radio’s 2006 Poet Laureate and the CBC 2006 – 2007 Poetry Face Off Champion.
