When I was on the road in 2011, the good folks from Revolutionary Hip-Hop Report gave me a the Nuclear Winter Vol. 2 mixed tape by SOLE. I had no fuckin idea who this joker was, but that mixed tape was in heavy rotation in the Cream Machine (my former mobile HQ) for the rest of the year.
This motherfucker drops smart yet unpretentious rhymes that are not afraid to be goofy. Like for example, “I think I’m Noam Chomsky:”
Bikini Atoll used to be an island
They blew up with nukes
Next day in France
They unveiled the bikini swimsuit
The Emperor is half-black
So in Hip-Hop I can only half-criticize
Sole and I have been chatting now for bit over a year. As a result, I got an advance to his newest joint “A Ruthless Criticism of Everything” and all I can is this shit surpasses all his previous releases. Now, I”ll shut the fuck up and let you listen for yourselves. If you dig this shit, support non-corporate indie radical rap and buy the reckid.
