In Person: Saul Williams

Posted by dancehallhips on February 15, 2008

Rapper (and poet/actor/writer) Saul Williams came and visited my school today for a Q+A session. Saul’s most recent album, The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust, was produced by Trent Reznor; his album prior was produced by Rick Rubin. Essentially Saul talked about doing something new, as opposed to the redundancies and similarities in modern music and rap. He said in the last decade his favorite albums, save OutKast, have not been hip-hop, but artists who push the envelope such as Bjork, The Mars Volta, Bat For Lashes, Radiohead, and M.I.A. I landed some tickets to his show tonight, so I’ll try and make it out and let y’all know how it went. His album’s available digitally, via his website, for a mere $5.

Yeah, indoor photography and windows don’t really mesh too well.
