With his latest single, “Only the Poets,” Ant Valentine has once again proved his mettle as a conscious rapper with a flair for poetry. The track opens with a mellow jazz beat, and Ant’s smooth flow draws the listener in. The lyrics speak of the transformative power of words and how they can heal wounds, spark revolutions, and shape our world.
Ant’s verses blend personal experiences and social commentary, touching upon issues like police brutality, mental health, and the struggles of being a black artist in a white-dominated industry. His words are raw, honest, and thought-provoking, reminding us of our responsibility as artists and human beings to speak truth to power.
“Only the Poets” is a fitting tribute to Ant’s style, rooted in the jazz-infused hip-hop of the 90s but has a modern, introspective edge. It’s a song that will stay with you long after the beat fades out, a reminder that sometimes, all it takes is a few words to change the world.
