Sole: The Busiest Rapper You’ve Never Heard Of
Hip-Hop -experimental artist Sole (one of the founders of Anticon) has spent the last two years living in a cabin in the midst of the Coconino National Forest in Arizona with no mayor, no phone lines, broken cell phone reception, just books and environmental canyon sprawl.
The return to analog life inspired much his latest album Plastique along with an EP: Battlefields, a national tour, and a website that boasts 1-2 million hits a month! Check it: www.soleone.org/stats
“Everywhere man goes he is in conflict, and such conflicts are found throughout the album: the interpersonal, the political, the anti-social, the city, the desert, the industries and the anti-ideologies wherever they are found.” Sole touches on everything from touring in a recession, media and war, race, rap, wildlife, space, identity politics and the insane tightrope one must walk to talk about such issues without sounding like a book report.
