This collection of raps which go right back to the old skool is the best poetry collection you’ll buy this year…DJ MAG
“…the philosophical, sophisticated, and deeply-affecting rhymes found in Malik Ameer Crumpler’s Beneath The Underground [is a] reflection on the meaning of the contents of this captivating release…” –Across The Margin
“Highly recommended for fans of the literary works of Saul Williams, Ursula Rucker, Amiri Baraka, Gil Scott-Heron.Black Nerd Problems
“This year, the Bay Area-born Crumpler released his first book of raps, Beneath The Underground: Collected Raps 2000 – 2018, and I interviewed him about the influence of San Francisco on his work”- [PANK] magazine
“HIS new BOOK walks the line of poetry and rap..” Cold Lips Online
“Beneath the Underground is an over the top, high spin of cosmic stars, the deepest blue soundwave of subterranean see and sky that resonates in the soul and dares to lift the spirit beyond the Beyond. This is the ultimate dope, the opium of The People’s Church, the call and response of its many tribes–Oakland Tribe, Harlem Tribe, Paris Tribe– and all the new ancients whose holy echoes may be heard in the rhythm and drumroll of his every syllable. Not just another cellophane rapper, Crumpler seeks transparency in his fervent sincerity and healing heart. His ‘I’’ is not that of Ego, but there but for the Grace of you go Eye. His every word spoken and un celebrating the fragile strength and fullness of Life. Tops ! ” –Antonia Alexandra Klimenko (Spoken Word Paris Co-Curator )

Amber Hymns (Satori Ideas, N.Y. 2011)
“Malik Crumpler’s Amber Hymns is a difficult collection to describe: sprawling through an urban chaos in which music and language combine, it is a bold attempt to codify a human experience where reality and spirituality exist both within and outside the mind. The work flows through many states, with Crumpler informing us that ‘Fire informs the chaos | that will permit | your new form to form’. The self is purged and a renewal is enacted: the motif of the phoenix and the owl – symbolic of resurrection and of death – abound the text.” –EGOIST REVIEW, Cambridge England
