Modified;

Basically write a poem about how you balance your daily life as an 'mc/artist' with your 'personal life/ love life drama' with your special lady! The pros and cons of the struggle!

Write about how you combine Improving your writing /freestyling skills, studio hustle, girlfriend drama, love struggles, school stress, street/gangster _shit, cash problems etc, in an imaginative and dope way! Its quite simple, but make sure its entertaining, knowledgeable and factual! Keep it real........

Liricyst Vs MuhdG, I have four topics from which you two may choose.

1. Love Is My War (War Is My Love)
2. The Price of My Blood
3. Creation Vs Destruction
4. The Eyes of Seven Blind Men

Whichever one you choose I will add the categories and clarify if you want me to. If you don't like the topics I will give you another four from which you may choose.

Ok, the Poetic Justice topic is using a rap-esque poetry to talk about the ills of the society against the poor. It's about a descriptive poem about how our elites treat the 3rd citizens with disdain. A medium to give a voice to the downtrodden and speak about the injustice and vices the rich and ist class citizens get away with. In other words, a poem about the justice that keeps eluding the common man.

Love Is My War(War Is My Love)

This poem should simply point out the double standard employed by humans as they advance their daily warfare. In this case, your emphasis should be on the claim to love but the reality and outcome of these claims. You can make Faith/(Religion) and Nations your ally.

The Price of My Blood

This is simply what you are worth as a human being. What's it that can warrant you giving up your life pursuing. Is it fame? Money? People? Anything. Your argument is what matters here and not really the morality of whatever you choose to hold as the most important in your life.

Creation Vs Destruction

Here you compare and contrast between bringing something into existence and taking it out of existence. Again, it's not really about what is right here but how you explain them well and appeal to the reader. You should also explain the balance the two brings. Also if one is allowed to go on, what then? Just give us a good poem.

The Eyes of Seven Blind Men

The mind of a blind man is literally not blind but his eyes. This literal blindness can be taken to connotative/metaphoric heights to symbolize the absence of vision.

But now not in our blind man but in any man. This topic is simply about ignorance. And Seven, in the Spirit Realm, is perfection. You can rephrase our topic to mean: Perfect Ignorance. But then what does this mean? Tell us how deadly this is, what it has done to humans and our relationships with the Ecosystem. I'm not telling you anything about Ozone Depletion. Think up every relationship.

Just give us a good poem. You can ask for clarification after you choose.

Ok. 2 more options.

The Gods of Egypt.

This is about the gods of Egypt like Isis, Ra, Horus, Osiris, Set, etc. Rap about their powers, characters, treachery, origins, etc. Take us deep into world of these gods and how they held sway back in the days.

HipHop is Dead.
Here, I want you both to be poetic about rappers like Rakim, Kool G and co that redefined HipHop and make Rap genre a worldwide accepted culture and how idiots like 2chainz and Young Thug are busy killing the game with their wack bars.
