Short Bio Smooth, imaginative, sultry, cunning, and eloquent could all be used to describe this poet, but one word is enough: Xplicit. His passion for poetry draws from life experience, and his work truly captures the moment and paints a vivid picture in your mind. This former math professor turned full-time poet has definitely made his mark as a businessman and as a force to be reackoned with in the urban poetry scene. With St. Louis as his poetic birthplace, he began hitting the open mic scene in 2007 and 3 years later, continues to rock stages all across the country with his high energy performances combined with an array of wordplay. Xplicit is not just a traveling poet, but hosts and promotes 5 different poetry shows in both Missouri and Illinois. Teaming up with business partner, Marlo White (DJ 76 Kid) in 2008, he launched Soul U, an entertainment company.
He’s recently released his 3rd CD entitled “Spoken Acid”, which has received excellent reviews for its creativity and stylistic approach. Though traveling, writing, promoting, and performing may seem to demand much of his time, Xplicit values and believes most important is his time spent being a devoted father to his daughter. The future is indeed bright for this young and driven artist, and in his own words: "If you have a doubt in your body, ignore it! Sky is the limit, so soar it!"

Long Bio   The STL scene has its share of spoken word venues and poets to grace the mic for those venues. In the words of STL spoken word artist Corey Black said on Facebook about the recent spoken word outbreak: " Its way too many open mic nights in St. Louis. The poetry scene is gonna be so lame by the end of spring. Too oversaturated. Im gonna start my own open mic night, everyone else has one."..... As with any trend, you have your originators and your copiers which can cause the oversaturartion. In the spoken word game, it’s no different. But it’s best to be a creator than a follower. One of those creators is local poet, college grad, math and stats wiz and businessman Xplicit.

Since 2007, he has been blazing the poetry scene with his dynamic, rhythmic flow and creative wordplay becoming one of the “Young Princes of Spoken Word Poetry” in St. Louis. Forward three years to 2010 and one will see that this brash and handsome, Bloomington, Illinois native, and former college professor is moving full speed with his poetry career becoming a mover and shaker in the promotions game as well by co-creating the spoken word promotions company Soul U, and three spoken word events: the weekly Soul Stages and the “on hiatus” monthly Soulace and Soul Live. CD art for his upcoming CD, Spoken Acid He is also gearing up for the upcoming release of his second spoken word CD, Spoken Acid (his first was Realize and Relax released in 2008) first with a listening party April 7 at Twisted Olive on Delmar and a release party at Soul Stage April 11 at STL Finest Bar and Grill. Xplicit—who shortened his name from xplicitly Intelligent in 2007—started recording his newest CD last September while juggling his day job teaching math and statistics at a city college in St. Louis.

But in December, he made the hard decision to quit teaching and walked on faith to do poetry for a living. “When I stopped teaching, I had to come up with a product,” Xplicit said. “ It was time for a new CD.” He also talked about his process recording Spoken Acid. “As a poet, you gotta have inspiration to write,” Xplicit said. “My inspiration is living life and people talking about their experiences. I wanted this CD to have a different vibe than other CDs. It has a down to earth feel to it, more like a mixtape CD using industry beats. It’s also a studio CD where I had to go into the studio and record.” Xplicit and his Soul U biz partner DJ 76 Xplicit, who moved to St. Louis in 2006 to attend grad school at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, said that he collaborated with other spoken word artists from New York, Baltimore and the Lou and recorded a few tracks live in January at STL Finest Bar and Grill at Soul U’s 2009 creation, Soul Live where spoken word artists
