Sole, a.k.a. Tim Holland, rages amidst angry tea partiers.
Is it just me or is smart rap getting pissy these days? There’s something in the water east of California, I’m convinced, because Isaiah Toothtaker and his Tuscon, AZ, cohorts are whipping up some dastardly, devilish rhymes. And Big Sole, formerly of Anticon, is out in Denver, churning out what may prove to be the most fiery, on-point agit-prop rap of the new century. I had the pleasure of debuting a couple of videos from these dudes.
First, check out “White Rage,” by Sole and featuring a glorious sermon by the one and only Evangelist J.B. Best (a.k.a. Pedestrian). Then, watch the menacing clip from the Toothtaker, co-directed by Walter Gross.

No words for this.
I had no words for this, but a second video tip-off from the Pedestrian, a.k.a. the good evangelist J.B. Best (check out the first two tracks on the Lala player, screen right), revealed a second gem in addition to the incredible new E-40 video. Eerily similar in its visual theme is the just-released clip from spoken word heavyweight Gil-Scott Heron. Two of the hip-hop’s biggest DNA-providers crossing paths in the night.
