Estep helped to popularize slam poetry through appearances on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam and MTV in the 1990s. The Timeswrites, “Ms. Estep’s poetry was characterized by gritty honesty, black humor and a post-punk brand of feminism. … Her poems, which she delivered relentlessly, were a cascade of images, often tinged with absurdity, violence and innuendo."
