By Sound Check
July 9, 2015
Watch this poetic message from MartyrLoserKing aka Saul Williams – ‘Coltan As Cotton’.
MartyrLoserKing (the title character of Williams’ new album) is “a cyber hacker living in the East African country of Burundi who builds a Frankenstein’s Monster-like super-computer from the parts of abandoned desktops, teaches himself how to code and develops an online cult following. He’s in love with a transgender woman named Neptune Frost and hosts a cryptic and anarchist podcast, through which his eventual hacks into Google and the Pentagon turn him into Public Enemy No. 1, a kind of militant Edward Snowden.”
