Huggy Bear Da Poet
Website: www.myspace.com/huggybeardapoet
Location: Mobile Alabama

Huggy Bear Da Poet Huggy Bear Da Poet was born and raised in the city of Mobile Alabama. Though his talents have allotted him the opportunies to travel the world. Huggy has grace the stages of venues in states from Green Court in L. A.; Apache Café in Atlanta; to the Nuyorican Café in New York City. He has opened up and for such greats as Nikki Giovanna and Jesse Jackson. Through his socially aware poetry he has captivated and evoked social change in each and every venue he has performed. Huggy writes from the heart and performs from the soul. He uses spoken word to motivate, empower, and agitate people toward social change. His in your face style of performance provides a catalyst to make one look deep within ones self and face those things that might be one of your own personal fears. Huggy is self published poet. In his book titled Love, Laughter, Heartache and Pain, he takes the reader on a journey through his own personal walk in life. In this book he shares very intimate details of his battles with the pain of deception, social political awareness and the struggle of the black family. As the reader takes the ride with this “Lyrical Beast,” it becomes obvious that he writes from real experiences which were brought fourth from the pain, happiness, and learned lessons of life. His CD Where I Was followed the book to continue t entice his listeners with the raw truth. In his travels Huggy has become painfully aware of the struggles his people still endure. He spits poems of social resistance, as he captures the pain and triumph of being black in today’s society. This inspired him to create the Africa Town Poet Society. He wanted the rich cultural history of his ancestors in Mobile to live on. Through his poetry, guidance, and teaching, he has insured that the legacy of his ancestors will continue to be passed on through the tradition of oral history. Through spoken word Alex “Huggy Bear” Lofton II, hopes the social change will not be revolutionary, but evolutionar

Huggy Bear da Poet on Fisiwe’s LoveArtLife Radio on 1/20/08 7pm ET
Current mood: blessed
Category: Writing and Poetry




What can I say...just go to his page and listen. Listen and learn. Listen, learn and be moved!!! The brothah's voice echoes the rich wisdom of life passed from generations of ancestor onto his today twinged tongue. I feel simultaneously transported backward and forward hearing Huggy proselytize, making me wanna shout "Amen!"...but I'm buddhist! This is gonna be a great one!
