Dub poetry--an extension of reggae culture
"Dub, an indigenous usage in this context, is a form of performance poetry having its roots in popular Jamaican culture, and more particularly in reggae and Rastafarianism. The movement has served to bring poetry, or at least some poetry, back to the people, although the performance-entertainment aspect sometimes mask shallow content and creativity." -http://www.eng.fju.edu.tw/worldlit/caribbean/caribbean_poetry.htm
