    Many people found his 'Oz' character irritating.

    He feels that poetry should be accessible and relevant to young people.
    He titled his first album 'Strange Fruit' as a tribute to the moving song by Billie Holiday.
    He acted in Spike Lee's satirical film 'Bamboozled.'
    He fuses poetry, jazz and hip hop.
