We live in a world with many diverse individuals. People with different backgrounds, faces, personalities, cultures, thoughts, and most importantly different individual talents. Some are born with the gift of creating art; whether it be in acting, singing, painting or fashion, but a very few are born with the gift to write beautiful poetry.
Humble the Poet, a Toronto based artist has been on the rise for a few years now. From releasing mixtapes early in his career, to creating singles with heavy concepts and creativity delivering his thoughts without sacrificing the message he is sending portrays true talent.
Humble might not look like your ordinary hip hop artist, but thats the beauty of art; being different. As he states in his video, changing his looks will not change his ability to write better or worse lyrics, or change his thought process. After facing some racial discrimination because of his long beard and turban, Humble continues to stay strong and work hard on fulfilling his dream for himself and his fans.
