With a May 1 release date set for his No Wising Up No Settling Down LP, Sole gave Prefix the green light to stream the entire shebang.
The Denver rapper comments on anything from his growing distaste towards ignorant hypocrites, the relevancy of the Internet generation, and the repercussions of capitalism. He even finds himself vicariously voicing his modus operandi that parallels the anarchist philosophy of feminist Emma Goldman.
“Insurgent Rap” is yet another club banger produced by Madison super-producer DJ Pain 1. As the title suggests, it is a shot across the bow to the music industry & bullshit rappers. Sole talks about his own experience running a label, the perils of being a middleman, and the challenge of pushing content driven music in an image driven industry. In an era where major labels and ghost A&R’s have done everything they can to “astroturf” new artists and falsely paint them as indie successes, sole proves that although it is always a fight being truly independent it is the only real choice for creative control and longevity.
A week before it’s release, Sole gives his fans an early listen (via Soundcloud stream found after the jump) to his new album A Ruthless Criticism Of Everything Existing . And for those needing a more visual look inside, check out the official video to “Assad is Dead” above.
No Presidents” is an anti ode to electoral politics, the justice system, class war, direct democracy, and war criminals. I took one of my favorite songs, “Dead Presidents” by Jay Z and fucked it all up. The simulation of “civic duty” is no substitute for taking action, so fuck the police state, “real politics is in the streets…” This is a track from nuclear winter 3… which so far is 90′s themed…
My New album “A Ruthless Criticism Of Everything Existing” is dropping in October and is currently being funded through kickstarter. Click here for more info. I have been releasing a free song for every thousand dollars raised, the downloads are exclusive to people who are backing it via kickstarter… the latest track is an unreleased gem with MPC legend, EGADZ.
New track from Sole that didn’t quite make the final cut on his upcoming album, A Ruthless Criticism Of Everything Existing, looking at a Fall release. The first solo LP from dude in seven years..
The inspiration for this track mainly comes from listening to Werner Herzog talk about nature as a kind of state of constant conflict. This track explores desertification in all its forms, techno-mimicry of biological life, and the passing of actual experience into that of mere representation. The music is made by Man Mantis, who produced 3 other tracks on the album. As much as I love this song I felt like I could have made it a couple years ago, so I decided not to put it on the album.
