Playlist: Saul Williams.

Saul Williams is a true poet. His new album MartyrLoserKing was released couple of months ago, and I’ve been really enjoying it.

Here’s one of the great songs from the album, The Noise Came From Here. It’s everything I love about Williams – strong lyrics, great production, stunning visuals. And really, those lyrics – beautiful and bare, arrows straight to your heart.

We won’t be silenced, no
The noise came from here
Your never ending war will not be waged from here

Your sirens and your guns, you know we paid for it all
Your scripture severing tongues, you know we paid for it all
With oil and our blood, you know we paid for it all
We won’t be silenced, no, because we paid for it all

You’ll never touch my love
