+1 on being a fan. Had the last album on heavy rotation on the ipod. Meaningful lyrics, heavy beats. Love it.

Don't agree with the lenny kravitz bit.

Cryptomnesian - the recall of memories not recognised as such, but thought to be original ideas.

Saul's been a long-time fave of mine, looking forward to hearing the rest of the album. Tr(n)igger has more power than the current hip hop top 100 combined.

Lenny Kravitz of rap? Huh? I'm not A huge fan, but I don't get this statement at all?
I guess they're both black . . . kinda. Is this one of those all "black people look the same" things? Not cool! Plus Saul's lyrics are way better! Totally different league!!

Lenny Kravitz most certainly isn't the Saul Williams of anything, so I think this analogy falls.
Suit #1: I mean, have you got any insight as to why a bright boy like this would jeopardize the lives of millions?
Suit #2: No, sir, he says he does this sort of thing for fun.

I've never heard of him before so I checked out samples of what he has on itunes and I don't get what the appeal is. The music didn't do it for me. If he has a more profound message and style to his rapping it doesn't really matter to me if the music isn't there.

I'm confused. Do you mean Paul Williams. He is the best hip hop artist out there now.
