ה-27 לנובמבר קומפורט 13. הופעה אחת שאתם לא הולכים לפספס

אני נמצא כרגע בעיצומו של מסע מיסיונרי, אליו יצאתי לפני תשע שנים, להפצת האמן שהשפיע עלי יותר מכל אמן אחר בעשור האחרון – סול וויליאמס. המשורר, הראפר, הפילוסוף, הפאנקיסט, השחקן, המרצה, האקטיביסט, המטיף, הפציפיסט, נביא הזעם שאני כל כך אוהב מגTABACיע לכאן להופעה אחת במועדון הקומפורט 13, תל אביב ב-27 לנובמבר ואתם הולכים להיות שם איתי. כוונו לעצמכם את הלב לרגישות מקסימלית. שכחו ממה שחשבתם על היפ הופ – זה גדול מזה. אז לקראת ההופעה הלא פחות מהיסטורית אני מתכוון להעלות לכאן מספר פוסטים בתקווה להרחיב את מעגל חסידי השירה הכל כך ייחודית שלו. אפילו שולי רנד, הברסלב החביב על הבלוג כבר יודע את המילים… סול וויליאמס הוא תופעה. אבל קודם כל מה שהכי חשוב –  המוזיקה, נו מה. קבלו את המיקסטייפ הזה באהבה. קחו הרבה אוויר. אנחנו צוללים.

נ.ב. – אלף נשיקות לחבר'ה שאחראים על הפקת האירוע – קבוצת הדי ג"יים האדירה TABAC שחוגגת בארוע זה יום הולדת שלישי. סחתיין עליכם הבאתם אותה בשיחוק ביג טיים!

נ.ג. – אם בכל זאת בא לכם לדעת קצת יותר – הנה מה שכתבתי ב-2003 על אלבום הבכורה שלו, Amethyst Rock Star, ב-ארספואטיקה או באתר השרת העיוור.

1. Talk To Strangers / self titled album

"Cause we represent a truth, son
That changes by the hour
And when you open to it
Vulnerability is power"

2. Fearless / Amethyst Rock Star

"Dear God, I wasn't breast fed
and most of my conversations with men seem to revolve around music
I'm no musician but the pain has been instrumental
my sense finally tune the instruments of – of – of
of being lonely, of being lost, of being loved, of being human
man I could use a metaphor but I can't get beyond this shit
I could use someone to talk to
but most of my conversations with men seem to revolve around music"

3. Penny For A Thought into Untimely Meditations / live at Fremont High School

be heartcore. what is it that we do art for?"

"Stealin’ us was the smartest thing they ever did. Too bad they don’t teach the truth to their kids"

6. Sha-Clack-Clack / from the movie Slam

"And Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben are standing in the corners with rifles
pointed at the heads of the little children
Don't shoot the children, I shout,
don't shoot the children!
but they say it's too late
They've already been infected by time
But that shit is before my time
I need more time I need more time"

7. Twice The First Time / Ninja Tunes Xen Cuts CD 3

"I will not rhyme over tracks niggas on a chain gang used to do that (Huh!) way back"

8. Tao Of Now (freestyle on some television talk show)

"Children of the night
Only some will star the sky
Only believers in death will die"

9. Untimely Meditations / Amethyst Rock Star

"I'm tired of trying to understand
Perceptions are mangled matted and knotted anyway
Life is more than what meets the eye and I
So elevate I to the third and even that shit seems absurd
When your thoughts leave you third-eye-solated
No man is an Island but I often feel alone
So I find peace through
"

10. Telegram live (spoken word)

"(stop). We are discontinuing our current line of braggadocio, in light of the current trend in "realness". (stop).  As an alternative, we will be confiscating weed supplies and replacing them with magic mushrooms, in hopes of helping niggas see beyond their reality. (stop). Give my regards to Brooklyn"

"Damn that loop is tight. Nigga, found a way to sample the way the truth the light"

12. part of the poem Coded Language / live @ The Scala, London

16. List Of Demands / self titled album

"I wrote a song for you today while I was sitting in my room. I jumped up on my bed today and played it on a broom. I didn't think that it would be a song that you would hear, but when I played it in my head, I made you reappear.

I wrote a video for it and I acted out each part. Then I took your picture out and taped it to my heart. I've taped you to my heart dear girl, I've taped you to my heart and if you pull away from me you'll tear my life apart"

Dear goddess can you hear me now?"

World leaders will turn to their mothers for advice
And mothers will turn to their daughters for inspiration"
