The iPoet Laureate raps on current events. It's a blog with songs by Sintax The Terrific of Deepspace5, and features guest beat producers, and the occasional guest poet.
Recent topics have been: the unrest in Libya, the riots/protests in Egypt and Bahrian, a song iPoet prepared to perform at The Grammys, Superbowl highlights, and the Brisbane floods.
Here's what the iPoet/Sintax says about it: "Current events and social justice have always been an important element of my own music. The delay between writing a song and officially publishing it to the world, however, can rapidly date cultural and political commentary in an artist’s lyrics. Unlike a blog which can speak immediately to an event, the process of music production and distribution necessarily comes at the expense of timeliness. I saw ipoetry as an opportunity to create running commentary set to music. A news report in a song. Or a blog set to song. A 'blong'."
