Ursula Rucker: Supa Sista

Yeah, the performance poet who comes on and does her thing ("all over you," as John said of Yoko) at the end of every Roots record. Which is why I tend to turn off Roots records right before the last track, but hey, are there beats here? No, not especially, and her delivery is Type 2 of Annoying Performance Poet Diction (Type 1, of course, being the upspeak-and-hold vowel pattern popularized by the Last Poets, who unlike anybody else who's tried it could get away with it). I sort of wish her politics were complicated rather than merely "good," too, but "good" politics aren't so bad.
