Legendary producer Larry Smith was the next door musical icon that took Poetry under his wing and taught him the ins and outs of the music production business. Poetry soon signed a production deal with Smith and cut a 4 song demo. Working the demo at clubs and on the streets earned Poetry respect he desired, but inside he demanded more from his music and of himself.
Poetry returned to Smith and the two formed Jump Start Music and soon thereafter Poetry started 1313 Playazville Lane . With the release of the "Psycho" album and the growing success of his companies, Poetry created a buzz large enough to attract the attention of Select Records.
Although Poetry no longer works with Smith, he holds on to the knowledge and experience passed on to him. Poetry continues to push the genre of hip hop in new directions with his latest singles, "Caught Up and Shake It", in hopes that 2007 will be the year his music causes a groundbreaking movement to forever alter the course of hip hop.
