Videos - HBO Def Poetry Star Oveous Maximus @ The Inspired Word
HBO Def Poetry Star Oveous Maximus @ Mike Geffner Presents The Inspired Word, Thursday, Sept. 29, 2011, One and One Bar/Restaurant, Nexus Lounge, Manhattan, NYC. Hosted by Gemineye.
Oveous Maximus is a recording artist who fooled everyone into believing he was a poet. He grew up in the Bronx and Washington Heights exposed to the richness of jazz, soul, hip hop, and Afro Latin music. An honorary member of the world-famous Nuyorican Poets Cafe, Oveous shares his own brand of "rap & spoken word." He became a National Poetry slam finalist three years in a row, is a multiple time winner at the Apollo Theater, has performed on the hit series HBO Def Poetry, starred in the film SP!T, and has recorded music with Grammy Award winner Louie Vega. Has released two critically acclaimed albums and is about to release his 3rd studio album, which he wrote and produced entirely himself. For more info, please visit http://oveous.blogspot.com/.
