Discovery: Ignited Poet

Ignited Poet is an American hip-hop artist whose style has a fresh but classic feel.

By Graeme Smith

The best hip-hop artists always invoke the roots of their music in their tracks and Ignited Poet’s new track Prodigal does just that. There are funk and soul elements to the composition that support his stream of conscious rapping which is a little reminiscent of Jay-Z.

At its heart Prodigal is a self-potrait but its far from self-indulgent. Through it Ignited Poet has created something highly enjoyable and a touch innovative. This is his first major single and I hope there’s more to come. Check out Prodigal below.
