This is a provocative and powerful exploration of the galvanising force of hip hop. From the 'astonishing poet' ("The Washington Post") and 'hip hop's poet laureate' (CNN.com) who gave readers, said the shotgun to the head, comes "The Dead EMCEE Scrolls", which blends thought-provoking commentary on the cultural and personal impact of rap with his signature brand of spellbinding poetry. Bringing together the tale of the author's 'discovery' of an ancient scroll hidden beneath a graffiti masterpiece in an abandoned subway line - and the dazzling message it holds - along with journal writings and popular performance pieces, "The Dead EMCEE Scrolls" is a darkly humorous, electrifying tour de force as only Saul Williams could produce.
