In case you missed poet Saul Williams’ recent appearance on The Colbert Report, here’s his mesmeric spoken word performance of “Amethyst Rocks” from his new poetry collection The Dead Emcee Scrolls. Williams is currently starring in Holler If Ya Hear Me, a Broadway musical inspired by the lyrics of Tupac Shakur.
Lake Street Drive’s new album, Bad Self Portraits, is an upbeat, unusual, funky, bluesy, jazz-influenced pop collection. Lead singer Rachael Price has some killer pipes. Fave tracks: “You Go Down Smooth” and “Just Ask.”
