Poems for My People and Me was taken from the iconic Nina Simone. In her song titled Mississippi Goddamn, she sings of how all she want is equality for "my sister, my brother, my people and me." The spirit of Nina Simone's cry to the world is infused throughout Poems for My People and Me with verses of struggle and triumph dealing with race, sex, and poverty.

    With a sound reminiscent of Gil Scott-Heron mixed with MC Lyte or Queen Latifah & the southern twang of Andre 3000, Monica "Sekhmet" Grant brings a very necessary lyric to some familiar sounds.
