Rhymecology: Helping People Express, Discover, and Recreate Themselves Using The Power Of Hip-Hop with Jeff Walker
February 16, 2022
Jeff Walker is a Rhyme Master, Rap Coach, and Qualified Mental Health Professional with a Masters in Educational Psychology and Counseling. Jeff uses his unique healing techniques with clients across the world for over 15 years. He is the creator of Rhymecology, which uses the power of hip-hop lyrics and culture to help people express, discover, and re-create their stories.
“I allow the positive signs from the universe to be way bigger than my self-made fears.”
He has worked with various talented artists such as Black Eyed Peas, Will I Am, Jamie Foxx, Randy Jackson, and the list goes on. On top of that, he’s also released three books called Rhymecology: Using Hip-Hop To Heal, Rhymecology: The Art of Hip-Hop Lyrics, and The Book of Rhymes. So, it comes as no surprise that he’s been featured on different shows such as ESPN, 60 Minutes, Fox Sports, Inside the NBA, HuffPost, and more.
His talent and passion for lyrical rap have opened plenty of opportunities for him. In return, he wants to use Rhymecology as a platform to write, perform, and teach the art of hip-hop across the world. Writing has pulled him out from the dark times, and he hopes it’ll do the same for others.
Of course, we wouldn’t let the episode end without hearing a piece from the Rap Coach himself.
Jeff’s Impromptu Spoken Word Poetry
The road less traveled
Might have more gravel
But if you stick with it
It’s like winning the raffle
Everyday joy can
Spin around like a tire
That’s what happens
When we live life on fire
I FOUND it’s real that
words and sounds can heal
In fact, maybe you should get on a track
And start dropping a verse about entrepreneurs
I’m shocked with words cuz I spent my life
Trying to find the right ones
Words can be used for spite, to fight or to IGNITE FUN
People just might need some guidance
I’ve helped migrant clients go from indictments to assignments
From defiant to reliant just with some refinements
Cuz where some see black holes and coal, I see diamonds
We gotta keep trying…Cuz life’s not a bitch
she’s a goddess and we should hold her
This is Jeff Walker from Rhymecology
