"Spoken word rap" is kind of a redundant term. Hip hop is spoken word poetry performed over music. There is definitely performance poets out there who's style is closer to a hip hop aesthetic than others, Saul Williams being, in my opinion, the king, but he's got his feet in the hip hop game as well.

And Dahlak Brathwaite is pretty ill too:

... ANd Black Ice:

There are also some MCs that work in a more ambiguous free-form style that a little more closely resemble spoken word poetry (DoseOne, Aesop rock, Sage Francis, etc.)

I really hate spoken word rap, but Dudley Perkins has some stuff out there for anyone looking for it.

More of a freestyle over jazz. This is still in the spoken word setting. This may be a great example. You let me know.

YouTube - mikah 9 - let's fly / black man swing

YouTube - mikah 9 - u.n.i.t.y committee party part's 1,2&3

I guess it's not spoken word so much as rapidfire spit word
