**************

“Rochell D. Hart, known to many as Ro Deezy, is absolutely one of the most phenomenal, powerful and incredible women, poets, teachers, thinkers and leaders of the present time. Once described as a “female cross between Langston Hughes and 2 PAC”, Miss Deezy is dynamically doing her part to eradicate so many social issues. From women’s rights to racism, to unfair treatment of the poor and oppressed, Deezy is making an impact across the board. More than words … she puts her beliefs in action, and that alone is a gift. If you don’t know who she is, FIND OUT.” David Seletzige, Ph.D. Trenton, New Jersey

An underground superstar and still in her twenties, Rochell D. (Ro Deezy) Hart is already a veteran of her game. An Oregonian Newspaper writer hailed her as "A female cross between Langston Hughes and 2 PAC" while Spoken Vizions Magazine called Ro "The Queen from the West." Cris Day of the Willamette Week Newspaper said, "... she stands out as an original and intelligent voice struggling free from a crowd of one-dimensional stereotypes."

An award-nominated author, activist and man-loving radical feminist, Ro was the first black woman from Oregon to represent the state at the 10th Annual National Poetry Slam (Chicago, IL 1999). She opened shows for artist that range from the Grammy Award winning group, The Roots to the Revolutionary But Gangsta Dead Prez (seen recently in Dave Chapelle’s BLOCK PARTY). Ro has also met and shared the stage with Laura "Piece" Kelly of Russell Simmons / HBO Def Poetry Jam, the legendary Nikki Giovanni and Maya Angelou.

Ro's second book, a 200-page collection of confessional poetry titled "A Black Girl's Song" (Highbridge Press, NY 2001) was considered for the Oregon Book Award - the highest literary award in the state. Ro has performed her prolific spoken word at innumerable open-mic and featured shows. Her passionate prose and poetry has been solicited by NIKE, The Urban League, The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, The Spring Valley (NY) Domestic Violence Institute, Portland Community College, Portland State University, Washington State University, Bennett (NC) University, The U.S., Department of Veterans Affairs, African-American Health Coalition and many, many more.

This debut album, (which Ro wrote entirely) is a mix of socially conscious spoken word and hip-hop, features HOT beats and total production by David (O.G. One) Jackson of O.G. One Productions. Since it's release, the CD has gained attention and sold copies throughout the states and internationally including Japan, the UK and New Mexico. Hart's sixth book, titled "What Else Did You Think I Would Say" was released in 2007 and can be purchased nationwide anywhere books are sold.

Rochell D. Hart (The Artist)

Willamette Week Review of This CD
BY WW Editorial Staff - - p.i.m.p. (poetic intellectual making progress) from Rochell D. Hart (O.G. Productions, CD, $15)

Set to a slow and often sensual beat, Portland poet Rochell D. Hart's new CD, P.I.M.P., mixes hip-hop rhythms with real-world street lyrics, black feminist pride and abundant intelligence in order to create a "higher level of spoken word."

Exploding with self-confidence, honesty and conviction, Hart's voice, backed by O.G. One, paints a vivid portrait of black America and addresses such issues as the self-ghettoization of black youths, racism and the antagonistic attitude of the police. P.I.M.P. also delves into the idea of a "reborn black woman," a black queen free from both the constraints of history and the current MTV hip-hop attitude toward black women as easy ho's or as shallow materialistic bitches.

In her track "Don't Wana Be" she states, "My inner spirit called out and demanded that I be more than the images I too often see/ because I don't wana be another booty-bouncin', loud-talkin' ghetto-unfabulous girl." Instead, she calls for a black woman who is more than a stereotype imposed by white America or black culture.

Black men are also scrutinized. In "I Got a Bone to Pick," Hart attacks the glorified vision of gangsters, hustlers and pimps in black culture, stating that "to those who think a pager and a cell phone means having big things/ to those who think that waiting on a once-a-month county check is having a dream/ I got a bone to pick/...hustling on the block is not an accepted alternate to a 9-5, and that gun-toting rough-neck mentality is just a contribution to genocide."

Hart reveals the power and beauty, as well as the flaws, of her world, and in doing so she stands out as an original and intelligent voice struggling free from a crowd of one-dimensional stereotypes.

A Powerful Influence
Ro you've influenced me greatly as an artist ... from seeing and hearing you I've learned to give my work life instead of just reading some words off of a page ... since the first time I've heard you you've been one of my favorite poets.
