On this week’s SNSS, our friend, the illustrious Saul Williams, joined us to co-host and discuss his new book, Chorus: A Literary Mixtape, which you can cop here. It’s an amazing piece of work where Saul combined hundreds of poetry submissions from his social media channels and then “mixed” them together through the underlying themes in the text. He even highlighted specific words from the other authors throughout the book to create his own poems, woven inside the other pieces. Everything that good DJ’s do with music, he did with poetry. Trill.
Musically, we ran tracks from artists like Fabolous, Scoe, Main Attrakionz, Junia-T, Miguel, Mansions on the Moon, The Weeknd, Nas, Kanye, and more. Enjoy!
