DR. MAYA ANGELOU was an iconic American writer, poet, actor, dancer, director, composer, lecturer and one of the most renowned and influential voices of our time. CAGED BIRD SONGS is a unique musical concept created by Shawn Rivera and co-produced with RoccStar, that thoughtfully blends the iconic poet’s words with contemporary hip-hop.
DR. ANGELOU’s grandson, Colin, reminisces that music was such a huge part of his grandmother’s life. “She loved everything, from pop to country and, of course, hip-hop. With her dedication to social activism and how she illuminated the struggles and injustices of the urban experience through prose, there’s a direct correlation to hip-hop today. She was really excited about her street-wise commentary being presented in this way.”
