Actor Omari Hardwick has dazzled audiences during his star turn as James “Ghost” St. Patrick on Starz’s hit series, Power, but few knew that he’s a spoken word artist as well. Hardwick has dusted off the poetry books and is making a return to the scene by way of a new album that features 50 Cent, Method Man and more.
Most of you know Omari Hardwick from his role as James “Ghost” St. Patrick on the television series “Power.” However, he’s also a talented poet, who released a spoken word album in 2002 titled “Return of the Poet.”
Fifteen years later Omari is set to return with “Later Decatur.” An album that boasts features from Goapele, 50 Cent, Melanie Fiona, Rotimi, Method Man, Tank and Josiah Bell.
Robert Glasper will executive produce the project.
On Hardwick’s Instagram page, he’s been letting fans in on the Later Decatur recording process by showing some of he and his collaborators at work on the project. We’ve collected some images to view below and on the following pages.
