Literature and poetry itself has its own beauty, so when there is resonant music, it is easy to enter people’s hearts “.

Binz has also been mentioned in the American music magazine Billboard with the phrase: “Vietnamese rap poet”
Music to lift the wings of poetry, especially poems that are not widely known to have the opportunity to be more welcome.
