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!!
LOLOKTHEN!

anyway, i stand by my flippant comparison.
SW made some heavy tracks a few years ago with the Anticon lot, back when he seemed to care, but this new shit is dull. bills to pay n all that. can't blame him. will probably sell shitloads.

with the Anticon lot...
talk about dull. never heard anything more soulless and contrived than an anticon release (anyone take your pick).

btw saul's new album is above average. I really like "Scared Money"

was never a fan either - dose one's nasal whine made me feel especially violent - but at least they had big ideas back then.

Saul Williams is not a rapper, he is a Spoken Word artist. I'm not sure if this embeded youtube video will work, but this is the 'normal' Saul Williams.

Is it just me, or does he actually sound like TR (his voice that is, obviously TR's hands are on the music)?

I like it.

I think this collaboration between Reznor and Williams is really cool. The 5 bucks I paid for the download is not much for such high quality record. This one made me a fan of Saul Williams (was already a fan of Reznor) and I intend to buy more of his stuff in the future.
