From the astonishing poet who gave readers Said the Shotgun to the Head, comes this provocative look into the galvanising force of hip hop. Bringing together the tale of the author's discovery' of an ancient scroll hidden beneath a graffiti masterpeice in an abandoned subway line along with the journal writings and popular performance pieces, The Dead Emcee Scrolls is a darkly humorous, electrifying tour de force as only Saul Williams could produce. Saul is every kind of great artist combined into one.' - Nas'
