- Artist: Saul Williams
- Track: All Coltrane Solos at Once
- Album: Martyr Loser King
Numerous poets have crossed over into rap, but few, if any, can match slam veteran Saul Williams's ability to embed complex, topical lyrics in compelling musical compositions. If you're not familiar with his work in the realm of hip-hop, you could hardly ask for a better entry point than All Coltrane Solos at Once, a spacey selection that finds him lacing an unknown producer's grimy synth boardwork with knotty ruminations on race, privilege and civil unrest. Haleek Maul assists on the vocal tip. If this record's piqued your interest, you can click here to read an essay on Fader expanding upon the ideas expressed therein.
