Saul Williams
Amethyst Rock Star (Island Def Jam)

By: Alex Steininger

Lyrically sly, fast-talking hip-hop, Saul Williams' Amethyst Rock Star is the punk rock of the hip-hop world. An against the grain record with a flavor for speaking its mind and delivering it in a palatable, if slightly jarring collection of some of the boldest hip-pop you're likely to come across. Refusing to over produce or deliver an MTV-ready album shallow and lacking, Saul Williams is all about substance, making Amethyst Rock Star the cross over hip-pop album of the year; an album indie rockers and punkers will like and hip-pop fans will embrace. I'll give it an A.
