                  Volume 1


STEEL WATERS - VOLUME I:  DUPLicate AuthentICITY reflects the duality of its author, Reggie Legend.  Concern and disregard.  Strengths and weaknesses.  Spirit and flesh.  Scriptures and rap lyrics.  Light and dark.  While these counterbalanced themes define a man living in and torn between two worlds, they are also played out in the fullness of this collection of poetry.


Existing within such duplicity, STEEL WATERS VOLUME I:  DUPLicate AuthentICITY  captures Reggie’s struggle as he seeks balance between Biblical scriptures and the lyricism of Hip Hop which influence the delivery and context of his message.  Which one will win out?  Is there room in one man’s gray anatomy for both the light of Christ and the flesh tones of rap music?


Walk with Reggie Legend as he maps out this struggle through verses of rhyme and reason and decide for yourself.
