The things that Faylita Hicks has accomplished on the spoken word scene are numerous and valuable enough to give the average person a sense of career and artistic fulfillment. Like many of my central Texas peers, however, I know Faylita is not satisfied with conquering the obvious, and all of the work she has put in has led her up to the point to transition into something greater. That being said, the seeds she has planted over the years are coming to fruition in 2019, as a secured distribution deal for her book #Hoodwitch has provided her the opportunity to release a warning shot in the form of Onyx, her latest spoken word release. A collaboration with producer poolboi blu, the project showcases a handful of poems from #Hoodwitch, which allows us to get a sense of the deeply personal and thought provoking words that Faylita plans to share in her book. Don’t forget to check out the artwork for the individual tracks as well, especially while taking a moment to read along with the performance on the track. Trust me, this is one experience you will not want to miss.
