Power’s own Omari Hardwick is launching a podcast titled, Poetics dedicated to Hip-Hop and spoken word.
Hardwick described the show saying “I’m asking rappers to come in and sit down and recite a poem, lose the machismo. Poetry has a vulnerability that rap and MC’ing doesn’t. You gotta be vulnerable. That kind of takes it to another level and gives [artists] a different look.”
Poetics executive producer and co-creator, Alex Angel, said, “Poetics brings to its audience an experience that calls back to the cinematic vibe. Omari encourages guests to go deep, and we enhance that storytelling with a dope soundscape. It’s not like an interview that you hear on a lot of podcasts.”
This is Omari Hardwick’s first endeavor outside of his five-year role as Ghost on the hit series Power. He is returning for the sixth season slated to premiere this Summer
