The Guardian interview Saul WilliamsIn Hip Hop
The Guardian have interviewed Saul Williams following the release of his new album MartyrLoserKing.
Williams discussed his new album MartyrLoserKing. A thinly veiled concept album carved from the tales of a hacker living in Burundi, the album serves as a work of action: re-rooting discussions of globalization, gender, identity and technology in the world of the 1%: the ones at the top and the ones at the bottom.
Picking up huge support, this vital new work has been praised across the industry with multiple playlist spots on BBC 6Music, Q magazine hailing the album “another gripping dispatch of socially conscious poetry” and Wire magazine describing it as “a conceptually intriguing and emotionally powerful masterpiece.”
Channeling his hacktivist alter ego Williams recorded MartyrLoserKing in sessions across Senegal, Reunion Island, Paris, Haiti, New Orleans and New York. It is a trans-continental, multimedia project that engages the digital dialogue between the 1st and 3rd Worlds, and the global street sounds that yoke the two.
