Amazing, I smiled, laughed, got heated, and was intellectually blown. I'm in lov
I smiled, laughed, got heated, and was intellectually blown. l.i.f.e was a blessing, a very nice surprise to hear my favorite poet on this already genius of a listen. I'm in love...


The Poetic Phenom
The CD is awesome it speaks truth about so many issues. I luv the one about the Refugees as well. I am a native of New Orleans and piece was nothing short of wonderful. I also luv the love poem. The whole CD is great!!!

Big Wes aka Jurassic Park

5 Mics, 5 stars, whatever you want to call it...
This CD is excellent!!! I wonder how or why Spoken Word has not been accepted as other genres - Underground Heavy is better than 99% of any rap album out right now.

Jessie Taylor

You are a star!
You don't need the knife, fork or the spoon....

This CD will change your life!

Eugene "The Composer" Brown

Underground Heavy
I found the CD to be superb. Not only is Taalam the hardest working spoken word artist. He is the most truthful Brother spreading this Earth with his knowledge of how things be.


Rhythm and Rhyme and Reason, spiced with history and intelligence
What can I say, been a Taalam fan for years, he continues to develop and deliver!

Frances in Tennessee

My daughter loves it!
She asked for this for Christmas and was so happy when she opened it. Then she put on her headphones and listened to it smiling and moving the whole time. If it makes her happy, that is good enough for me!

Lioness On Point

Rhythms of the Soul
This CD is so heavy it crosses both socioeconomic and generational barriers. It is truly something I was able to share with the young adults that I really enjoyed myself.
It is so hot that when I just let this young woman listen to my CD since she's into spoken word too. So I said go a head listen to it to see if you like it. Well I had to actually go to her house and physically take it out of her player but not before she had played it for all her friends and could quote the titles of the work like me. It's hot. Taalam's style of making you feel like he's right in the room with you is captivating. I love it and want more. Underground Heavy is just what he is. I want my sons and my daughter to hear it too. We already rockin it in the Virgin Islands. The message for the males and females is on point. Do it Acey!


I am so glad I bought this cd. The words are inspiring, the voice is sexy.

Hugh X Williams

Taalam can't stop, won't stop!!!!!!
Man he just keeps getting better and better. I am a fan for life. Keep bringing the HEAT.
