The Huffington Post put up an article this afternoon describing the anticon label co-founder as “a hip-hop legend.”
His image is projected on the sides of buildings in the unsettling new video for his song “DIY.”
And, most importantly for Colorado Springs, he and his Fake Four label-mates will be among the featured performers at the What’s Left birthday bash at Zodiac this evening. (Show info here).
Scroll down to watch the newly released video, which is set in a dystopian future that seems considerably worse than our dystopian present — at least, I think it does — and features a dictator who may or may not intentionally resemble our state governor. (Hickenlooper’s treatment of the Denver occupy movement didn’t sit so well with Sole, who spent a lot of time at the protests.)
After that, scroll down further for a quick clip from an interview conducted last week at Dallas airport, where I ran into the artist waiting for a connecting flight to Austin's SXSW music conference.
