Poets Need Parks To Make More Poets

 

Rapper Macklemore explains how municipal green space in his home city of Seattle influenced his career: He and his friends didn’t want to kick it at their parents’ houses, so they went and freestyled in parks.

 

We knew, of course, that Macklemore was into creative reuse, but who knew he had so many ideas about urban infrastructure? The moral here is clear: Want more rappers? Make more parks. It’s just science. Excerpt from Jess Zimmerman, editor of Grist List.
