This dude has a way with words. He’s such a poet. One of my favorites. And his music is amazing. I suggest you take a listen, you’ll learn something.
I remember when I heard him for the first time, around 2004, i believe. I was in my friend’s car, when I lived in Florida. We were on our way home from the bar and he put this fucking beautiful song on. It was, “Tao of Now” by Saul Williams and featuring Esthero (who i love, as well), and I immediately fell head over heels in love with it. Been following his work ever since.
I even love his version of U2’s “Sunday Bloody Sunday”, and I loathe U2, as well as most covers. But this one done did it.
So in conclusion, get up on your Saul Williams knowledge.
