Saul Williams Speaks On The Role Of Political Consciousness In Art

Saul Williams, poet laureate of hip-hop, has never shied away from speaking precisely what was on his mind, no matter how scathing or subversive. A recent interview with CNN found the jack-of-all-mediums speaking on what it means to be a artist working with political savvy, his latest mixed media project Martyr Loser King, and the difference between art for the sake of art and art for in the name of a societal good. The conversation charts his ascent and his personal stance on politics in America. Hit the link below for the full discussion and catch him on the road throughout the months of September and October performing both spoken word and with The David Murray Infinite Quartet.
