|Saul Williams – The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust: 4 stars
Precon: He’s a Def Poetry type artist. I’ve seen Slam and heard him on the Blackalicious song “Release.”
Favorite Track: Nothing head and shoulders above the rest. I remember taking note of Skin of a Drum so that’ll do.
I like how he can go back and forth between singing, rapping, spoken word, and various hybrids of those things and they all sound like different people. I noticed, at times, pronunciation like Busdriver, flow like Jay-Z, inflected emsinging like Brother Ali, singing like…Living Colour? Also like Trent or maybe that is Trent. He reminds me of so many people I can’t keep track of them all. I didn’t expect so much out of a guy who I just thought did spoken word.
