Just do it.

Buy/Download/Read anything by Saul Williams. It's well worth it. He's one of those artists that belong in a timeless renaissance - a struggle always weighed down by inevitability and availability. His words and ideas and musings reach much further than the artist he echoes, but is also lost in the void of saturation. This modern conundrum is confusing and the apparent struggle of such is...

What I'm sayin, is SAUL WILLIAMS IS MY SHIT!!!

Here's his latest video:
Saul Williams - Convict Colony

You may have also heard his song List of Demands used in a Nike commercial. This took me by surprise when I first heard it. List of the Demands is one of the most honest and raw songs I've ever heard and hearing it used to sell sneakers confused me. The 9TH Grader in me wanted to scream: SELL OUT! - but the NOW me accepted as what it is - the dance of duality that must be done.

But I'll allow Saul to speak for himself:

I see no glory in 'preaching to the converted'. Furthermore, I believe fully in the power of music and have branded my work with it's own conscientious stamp and stomp of attitude fueled to steal the show in the face of the nonsensical. Quite simply, it was clear to me that people would not be rushing to the store to buy Nikes after seeing that commercial, but rather rushing to youtube or itunes to hear or download the song. - Saul Williams
